Corresponding Secretary Chad Kampbell’s January 2017 Column in The Santa Clarita Valley Signal.
After several delays and more than a few obstacles the Whittaker-Bermite cleanup effort is well under way.
Completion of the cleanup is expected by late 2018. Once the cleanup is complete there is a harder question to answer: What should be done with the site?
The site is currently owned by a bankrupt company called Santa Clarita LLC. Several developers have shown interest in acquiring the land, but there is no current plan to develop the site once perchlorate and other pollutants are removed from it.
