According to the VV Daily Press, Erin Brockovich, the legal assistant who exposed the water contamination scandal that was later turned into a film, returned to the small desert town of Hinkley to gather information for a community meeting she wants to hold at the beginning of January.
PG&E has put together a feasibility study that outlines five different proposals for the chromium 6 cleanup of Hinkley’s drinking water supply. The Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board will be deciding which proposal is best suited for the cleanup efforts after they receive public input on an environmental impact report. The report will define any negative impact the project would have on concerns about aesthetics, water quality, air quality and noise.
Seems the chromium cleanup is not done, but Erin is on it again! I don’t know about any of you, but I loved that movie, you know the one I am talking about! Erin Brockovich of course. I would love to have the memory Erin does. Mine is pretty good, but if the movie showed anything close to what hers really is, I feel very inadequate in the memory department. I will be paying close attention to this story and hoping that Hinkley can finally get the clean-up that PG&E has promised.
