Public Lab to hold Enviro Event in Val Verde

Posted on:

Val Verde residents will host Public Lab, community where you can learn how to investigate environmental concerns using inexpensive DIY techniques, the weekend of July 9 and 10 to hold a “Regional Barnraising.”

SCVnews.com reported: “Stevie Lewis, outreach manager for Public Lab, suggested the organization doesn’t have preconceived notions about the Chiquita Canyon Landfill, which is located off of Highway 126, near Wolcott Way and Chiquito Canyon Road. Some of the nearby residents have complained about air quality and expressed concerns about the possible health impacts of the landfill.”

Spokesperson for Chiquita Canyon, John Musella, said, “In 2015, the Val Verde Community Advisory Committee hired an independent, third-party air quality testing expert to test for various compounds in the air at the landfill and at three locations outside of the landfill. Those results concluded there were no health and safety issues.  We’re pleased Val Verde is hosting a community-based environmental workshop. We hope that this additional review by the community will help further alleviate their concerns as was demonstrated last year by their independent air quality testing results.”
