FONTANA - One of the region's largest privately-owned water companies has reached out to the federal government to study contaminated water.

The Fontana Water Co., a division of the privately-owned San Gabriel Valley Water Co., announced Tuesday that the U.S. Geological Survey has begun a two-year study to identify the direction of perchlorate plumes in underground water flows in Fontana and Rialto, a project that will cost roughly $262,000.

The study will be paid for by the U.S. Department of Defense's Environmental Security Technology Certification Program, company officials said.

In September, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency placed the 160-acre BF Goodrich site in north Rialto on its Superfund National Priorities List.
