Quemetco Plant Lead and Arsenic Pollution
Two town hall meetings have been held about the Quetmetco Lead-Acid Battery Recycling Facility located at 720 S. 7th Ave. City of Industry. Although this plant is in City of Industry, it is adjacent to Hacienda Heights and lead/arsenic extends into our community. This plant is the only plant recycling lead/acid batteries in the U.S. west of the Rockies plus Canada and other foreign countries. The are requesting an extension and expansion of permits. The California Dept. of Toxic Substance Control, the L.A. Regional Water Control Board, and the South Coast Air Quality Management District will start testing residences in Hacienda Heights close to Quemetco soon. This plant has been guilty of polluting areas around its plant over the years. Testing for lead, arsenic and other cancer-causing substances will be conducted at residences, commercial schools and industrial facilities within 1 mile of the plant.
