Subject: [CPEO-MEF] PERCHLORATE: Rialto (CA) under Superfund
Superfund cleanup could mean refunds, water bill cuts for Rialto residents

RIALTO - Residents here might soon be getting money back from their local government - and they can thank Uncle Sam.

City officials are turning over cleanup of contaminated groundwater to the federal government, which means local residents could see surcharges for perchlorates removed from their water bills and reimbursement of charges already paid.

"I think what this means is the residents of Rialto can be assured their water will be kept safe for their families and the brunt of this cleanup is not going to be borne by them," Councilman Ed Scott said.

The City Council in a 5-0 unanimous vote last week withdrew from the Rialto-Colton Joint Powers Authority, which was formed in early 2008 with San Bernardino County and other agencies to seek funding to solve the perchlorate problem at a 160-acre site on the north end.
