Rep. Berman Pleased at EPA's Announced Efforts to Preserve Valley Water Supply

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

This week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced critical settlements that will allow for more than $3 million to be used for the cleanup of contaminated groundwater in North Hollywood and Glendale. These funds are an important first step in ensuring that the San Fernando Valley has its own source of clean drinking water, instead of having to rely on outside sources that can be unpredictable and costly.

"For residents and local businesses of the San Fernando Valley, this is a welcome announcement that the EPA and polluters are getting serious about securing our local water supply," said Congressman Howard Berman. "The San Fernando Valley is home to a vast supply of groundwater, and it is about time that we finally reverse the pollution damage done decades ago and re-open our local water wells."

According to the EPA, settlements with six companies will address contaminated groundwater in North Hollywood and Glendale, areas that are part of the San Fernando Valley Superfund sites.
