New Chatham Reports: Contamination in Felicita Creek at new high. Plume now south of Via Rancho Parkway.

We are sorry to report that we have very bad news.  We have finally had a chance to review the  January 16 Felicita Creek Evaluation Update and the Semi-Annual Monitoring Report Dec 12, 2014

Escondido Neighbors United filed this letter today with the Department  of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) ENU to DTSC Feb 16 2015 Requesting action on Chatham

In short, collectively, these reports show that results recorded:

·         the highest recorded levels so far of TCE, PCE, 1,2-DCE, and 1,4-dioxane in the creek and
·         the contamination plume is now south of Via Rancho Parkway. 

Further, the fact that owners of wells on the Oak Creek/Homeland site refused access to the consultants for testing is completely unacceptable and undermines the overall assessment.  As is well-known, this area is under consideration for development into homes where families and children will be present.
It is clear the contamination continues expanding unabated and more must be done.   This situation is intolerable and we have all waited long enough.  We are calling on the regulatory agencies to demand more action.
Please review these reports for yourself.  We will keep you posted.
