Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice, Executive Director Penny Newman, at a February 18, 2016 community meeting at Terrence Elementary in Riverside, calls for Governor Brown to take action on the contaminated PCB site known as AG Park.

Jim Martin talks about this issue of the contaminated site of AG Park in Riverside, that the community has had no representation by City Council. Past Councilman Steve Adams received monies from the developer Chuck Cox, the developer who is attempting to build homes on AG Park. Martin also calls out current Ward 7 Councilmember John Burnard, who was present, to be in bed with establishment politics, and that is why there has not been any movement.  Incidently, Burnard also received a campaign contribution from developer Chuck Cox.

2016 Mayoral Candidate Vivian Moreno calls for the Riverside District Attorney’s Office to enter in to the AG Park case and investigate wrongdoing.

Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice, Executive Director Penny Newman, and local resident and neighborhood activist Marilyn Whitney at a February 18, 2016 community meeting at Terrence Elementary in Riverside, talks to the community of the history of the contaminated PCB site known as AG Park.

Scott Andrews explains what the PCB numbers mean in terms of the danger levels of contamination withing the AG Park development site. Last year Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) signed off on the AG Park site as safe for a housing development. When the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was called in they found the development site to still be contaminated, in some areas it found to have 400 times the acceptable levels, in the communities eyes there should be no acceptable levels.  Below is the original document by DTSC that Andrews refers to clink the link below document pic to view full.  Everything in yellow goes beyond what is considered acceptable levels of PCB’s.
