Meeting is set on water quality

WEST HILLS -- The Department of Toxic Substances Control will hold a public meeting tonight in West Hills to discuss the latest results of soil and groundwater testing for perchlorate at the planned Sterling Homes site.

Consultants for the developer, Centex, and the DTSC found very high levels of the rocket fuel ingredient perhchlorate on the property last year. However, recent tests performed after heavy rain this winter found no perchlorate on the site, located at Roscoe Boulevard and Valley Circle.

The DTSC will discuss the findings and future testing at the meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. tonight at DeVry University, 22801 Roscoe Blvd. in West Hills.
