Ag Park Families Demand Justice

Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice started this petition to Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and


The Ag Park site was a sewer treatment facility and dump for military, industrial and residential waste. Chemicals like Mercury, Arsenic, Chromium, Lead, PCBs, Tetrachloroethane, Toluene, Trichloroethane, Dichlorobenzene, Perchlorate, Thallium, Dioxin and Furans have been detected at the site. The clean up has been conducted under a voluntary clean up program where the developer and their hired consultants test, remove and treat the contamination on their own. No agency has conducted testing to verify what the developers paid consultants say has been done. We demand independent testing to verify the site is actually clean before homes are built.

We want two things: 

1) Independent verification that there is no contamination in the soil, groundwater, or air.

2) Due to the past exposures to toxic chemicals from the shabby clean up and grading, local residents want their homes (attics, interior and yards) tested by an independent consultant to ensure they are not continuing to be exposed. If contaminants are found they want their homes cleaned inside and out like they are doing at the Exide site in Vernon.
