CA Perchlorate Treatment Funding Passes Senate

January 5, 2010- About $1.9 million in federal funds will flow to the region to treat wells contaminated by perchlorate, a rocket fuel additive that some scientists say can affect physical and neurological development by interfering with the thyroid gland.

Perchlorate is flowing from the north end of Rialto - partly from San Bernardino County property and partly from a 160-acre site to the east where defense contractors and fireworks companies operated after World War II.
