Team studying source of Rialto-area water contamination gets funding

Federal money will fund work by the U.S. Geological Survey to determine the source and movement of an underground plume of perchlorate in the Fontana-Rialto area that also threatens water wells serving the city of Riverside.

Officials with the Fontana Water Co. -- determined to find out who is fault for the contamination -- sought the $262,000 from a research arm of the Department of Defense, water company spokesman Rick Ruiz said. The company wants the responsible party to pay for water treatment now funded by district ratepayers, he said.

Water company officials and community activists say Fontana residents are being unfairly burdened because the city is not included in a cleanup plan being developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Last year, the EPA added a nearby 160-acre industrial area in Rialto, known as the Goodrich site, to its Superfund list for hazardous waste cleanup.
