Barstow Perchlorate cleanup could start in summer SAM PEARSON Barstow Desert Dispatch (CA) March 19, 2012BARSTOW - Clean up of the source of perchlorate contamination in soil and groundwater in Barstow likely will not begin until June, officials say. Earlier estimates had put the start date as early as February.
The Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are working to determine the best methods for cleaning up groundwater and soil contamination that Golden State Water Company first detected in 2010 in wells near the home of the former owner of the Mojave River Pyrotechnics Company.
Starting in Dec. 2010, the EPA sampled soil from 25.5 acres of the former pyrotechnics facility and the owner’s nearby residence. They found concentrations at the residence as high as 130,000 milligrams of perchlorate per kilogram of soil, much higher than the allowed level of 55 milligrams per kilogram. Sampling of groundwater showed concentrations of 110,000 micrograms per liter. No contamination was found at the pyrotechnics manufacturing facility.
