Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Rialto (CA) negotiations
Talks begin on perchlorate plume

Riverside Press-Enterprise (CA)

Settlement talks have started in the Inland region's largest unabated 
groundwater pollution case, officials said Monday.

Three companies accused of contributing to perchlorate pollution over 
the past 55 years in Rialto and Colton have agreed to hold confidential 
talks for the next 60 days with officials of the Santa Ana Regional 
Water Quality Control Board, the Riverside-based regulator.

Since 2002, the board has been trying to find those responsible for 
perchlorate pollution in order to prompt a cleanup of the 6-mile-long 
plume that has tainted more than a dozen drinking wells that serve the 
two cities.

Closed-door water talks frustrate Rialto council

Rialto wants its groundwater cleaned up, but a local water board has cut 
the city out of talks with three companies who are in "closed-door 
briefings" on the remediation process.

The city, which wrote a strongly worded letter Monday to the state's 
Environmental Protection Agency headquarters complaining about the 
insider talks, views the negotiations as a slap in its face.

It wants to be at the table on the talks to clean up industrial 
chemicals discharged in its northern section because it did a lion's 
share of the legwork to build a legal case against the companies.
