Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Excello Plating site Chromium 6, Glendale, California
Chromium 6 cleanup slated for contaminated lot
But the process could skew results at an adjacent testing facility.

Despite efforts to stop it, the chemical Chromium 6 has been seeping into Glendale groundwater for years at the site of a defunct plating company. By early next month, that will start to change.

Ralphs Grocery Co. plans to finalize the purchase of the nearly 1- acre property near the border of Los Angeles and Glendale within the next two weeks. With that done, it will begin cleaning up the contaminated dirt left behind by Excello Plating Co. in order to expand the grocerâs distribution center next door.

"The remediation of the Excello parcel with private funds and its restoration to productive use is a win for the community, as well as for Ralphs Grocery Co.," company spokeswoman Kendra Doyel said.
