COVINA, Calif. -- A public-private partnership project in
California not only is the largest of its kind in Superfund history, but has
developed into a national model. Those interested in learning more about the
groundwater cleanup project in the San Gabriel Basin can now access a
homepage on the Internet's World Wide Web.
The San Gabriel Basin project is unique in that polluters and
have joined to develop a combined groundwater cleanup and water delivery
system in the Baldwin Park area of Covina. Environmental studies on the $200
million project are now being completed, and construction should be under way
by 1997. Local, state, and federal agencies have joined to create the San
Gabriel Valley Water Internet Project that features information ranging from
technical data on the cleanup to agendas for upcoming meetings.
"The purpose of the San Gabriel Valley Water Homepage is to ensure
information and activities about water agencies in the San Gabriel Valley are
accessible to the public and shared by the participants in the project," said
Grace Burgess, director of administration for the San Gabriel Basin Water
Quality Authority. The new homepage, noted Burgess, "is a coordinated effort
by all of the agencies."
The San Gabriel Valley Water Homepage was completed at the end of
and can be accessed on the Internet at http://www.deltanet.com/sgvw/
