 A jointly sponsored conference will examine groundwater cleanup in the South Bay over the past 10 years. The conference will include two sessions. The League of Women Voters will moderate an afternoon session targeted to those with environmental expertise. Santa Clara County Supervisor Ron Gonzales will moderate the evening session which will be targeted to community organizations and the public. Both sessions are open to the public at no charge.
 Topics will include the investigation and cleanup process, risk management, cleanup standards and technology, pollution prevention and real estate and lending issues. "Groundwater contamination is an ongoing concern for county residents," said Supervisor Gonzales. "This conference will provide the public with the opportunity to be fully informed on these topics."
 In the South Bay, 28 groundwater contamination sites have been placed on or proposed for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's national list of Superfund hazardous waste sites. Investigation and cleanup activities have been going on at these sites and others in the South Bay for about 10 years.
 The conference is co-sponsored by U.S. EPA, the California Regional Water Quality Control Board, the Santa Clara Valley Water District, the Santa Clara County Manufacturing Group, the Santa Clara County League of Women Voters, and the Santa Clara County Tanner Advisory Committee.
