Norco, Calif., Homebuyers Were Not Told of Water Contamination

Apr. 15--NORCO, Calif. - When Audrey Pavia moved to her home in Wild
Horse Estates, her dream became a reality.

As far back as she can remember, she has always wanted a ranch house
with property where she could keep her horses.

She thought she was safe when a disclosure document from her homebuilder
said that nearby Wyle Laboratories didn't pose a health threat.

But then she found out that Wyle is under investigation by the state
Department of Toxic Substances as a probable source of chemical soil and
groundwater contamination.

"I feel devastated," Pavia said. "I feel like someone has just kicked me
in the stomach. If I would have known everything I know now about the
laboratory, I wouldn't have purchased the home."

Wild Horse Estates -- built by the Curtis Development Corp. -- sits off
Fifth Street and Hillside Avenue adjacent to Wyle, a testing facility
for the U.S. Department of Defense and various aerospace industries
since the 1950s. It is known to have used cancer-causing agents and
various other chemicals that have been found on the property and in soil
tests performed on Hillside Avenue near residential neighborhoods.
