Public hearings began to see if a recycling plant in Vernon should be allowed to re-open after tests showed it may have released dangerous levels of lead and arsenic into the air and groundwater.The state Department of Toxic Substances last month issued an emergency order against the Exide Technologies ...


The state Department of Toxic Substances Control said its order to suspend operations came after reports this spring revealed Exide Technologies, one of the largest car battery recyclers in the world, also has been continuously releasing hazardous waste into the soil beneath its plant because of a degraded pipeline, said spokeswoman Charlotte Fadipe.


Officials warned the 110,000 residents living in Boyle Heights, Maywood and Huntington Park they may have been exposed to dangerous levels of the chemicals, which could pose a relatively high cancer risk.


Many more who drive or work in the area could have been affected as well, according to the report.
