The community of Huntington Park, California is especially susceptible to soil contamination from the nearby industrial city of Vernon. Companies based in Vernon, such as Exide Technologies, have been convicted of contaminating nearby communities with Lead. Despite this, clean-up has been slow and much of the Huntington Park community is unaware of the state of their city. By mandating these companies to test the soil of possibly affected homes, citizens will better their understanding of lead and increased public awareness will inspire more effect regulations to be established.
