NORCO: The chemicals turn up in groundwater and soil in an area where
thyroid cancer cases occurred.|
By PAIGE AUSTIN Riverside Press-Enterprise (CA) March 12, 2005
State officials have found cancer-causing chemicals in the groundwater and soil beneath the same Norco neighborhood where a string of thyroid disorders and cancers prompted residents to demand an investigation almost two years ago.
The underground plume of contamination, which is within a half-mile of Norco High School and Norco Intermediate School, has spread farther into the community and at higher levels than state officials investigating the contaminated Wyle Labs property originally thought.
At the time, Wyle and state officials insisted that pollution could not have reached so far away from the hazardous-testing facility, which closed in late 2004.
Over the past two years, dozens of Wyle neighbors have blamed the lab's pollution for their health problems, even though regulators have not found a link between the contamination pollution and the cases of cancer and thyroid disease.
