July 15, 2010 - After three decades of trying to end contamination from a gasoline station leak in Seal Beach, the City Council has voted to direct BP/ARCO to dig out the tainted soil.
The company was asked 25 years ago to do something about the contamination at PCH and Fifth Street that was linked to fumes that seeped into neighboring homes last winter, causing three temporary evacuations.
The council vote was unanimous.

"We want to solve the problem and move on," City Manager David Carmany reportedly said of the contamination problem during Monday night's council meeting. "We don't want to be doing this for the next 20 years. Enough."
