Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Norco High School (CA) vinyl chloride
Contaminants detected

NORCO - Low levels of contaminants have been detected in buildings adjacent to the Norco High library, and the state wants to know where the chemicals are coming from and why.

Norco High sits near Wyle Laboratories and was among several areas tested for cancer-causing chemicals that leaked from the former munitions-testing site and into the community.

Rafat Abbasi, senior project manager for the Department of Toxic Substances Control, the agency overseeing the Wyle cleanup and investigation, said low levels of vinyl chloride were detected in the school's Buildings B and D, located in the northern section of campus, in May.

The vinyl chloride levels were lower than those previously detected in the school's science building in January and September, and therefore do not pose a health risk.

Nevertheless, DTSC is requiring Wyle to take indoor air and groundwater samples at Building B and D, which were tested for contaminants in July 2005 and January of this year, and were found to contain no levels at the time.
