Plans for treating a DDT-contaminated neighborhood near Harbor Gateway will be discussed next week at a public meeting sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The agency is also expected to report on plans for a new round of chemical tests along West 204th Street, east of Torrance. The EPA plans to test household dust for DDT content in 22 homes along the street. Residents of those homes are living in temporary housing at federal expense, after the discovery last summer of high levels of the banned pesticide on two properties.
The meeting will be from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at the Halldale Avenue School auditorium, 21514 Halldale Ave., Los Angeles.
