Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Runkle Canyon, California residential construction
Reassessing Runkle
KB Homes and state agree to cooperate on troubled Simi canyon

Coming on the heels of the historic covenant to clean up the former 
Rocketdyne Santa Susana Field Laboratory to the strictest U.S. 
Environmental Protection Agency Superfund standards for radiation and 
chemicals, a new agreement has been signed that promises a proposed 
development in adjacent Runkle Canyon will be closely inspected for 
pollutants that may have come from the lab.

KB Homes' Runkle Canyon LLC voluntarily entered into the agreement April 
14 with the state Environmental Protection Agency's Department of Toxic 
Substances Control (DTSC) to review documents for the "possible 
assessment and/or remediation of the Site, so that Runkle Canyon, LLC 
may qualify for the immunities afforded under [the California Land Reuse 
and Revitalization Act of 2004] and DTSC may be reimbursed for the costs 
incurred by DTSC."
