A lead-acid battery recycling plant in the City of Industry is located within 400 feet of homes in nearby Hacienda Heights and Avocado Heights.  Nearby residents are concerned about the possibility of lead, arsenic, cadmium, and antimony contaminating the area of their homes and schools.  Testing of soils is happening by the State of California Dept. of Toxic Substances Control and investigations are occurring by the South Coast Air Quality Management District.

Sierra Club has teamed up with the Clean Air Coalition of Avocado Heights and the Hacienda Heights Improvement Association to oppose an increase in production by 25%.

Should the increase in production be allowed?  Is DTSC doing its job?
