RIALTO: $5.7 million perchlorate settlement reached
Firms that used the 160-acre Goodrich industrial site will help pay for perchlorate cleanup; residents to be reimbursed

Companies that produced fireworks at a Rialto industrial site where perchlorate contaminated the water supply have agreed to pay $5.7 million — the first of three settlements expected to total more than $100 million, officials said.

The money will cover cleanup costs and reimburse residents who have been paying a surcharge on their water bills for almost a decade.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Rialto, Colton and San Bernardino County had sued Pyro Spectaculars Inc. and other parties suspected of dumping or burning toxic chemicals in pits at the site north of Interstate 210, between Alder and Locust avenues. The cities, as well as water districts not involved in the lawsuits, shut down 20 contaminated wells and installed treatment equipment after the pollution was discovered in 1997.
