Orange County River Threatened

State officials say a chemical leaking from a toxic waste site may threaten the Santa Ana River, a major
source of Orange County´s drinking water.

Preliminary test results show Perchlorate, a rocket fuel ingredient that can cause thyroid damage, has
contaminated a four-by-three-mile area of Riverside County, including a private

well in the Riverside suburb of Mira Loma.
