Twelve Orange County manufacturing plants are among 1,500 nationwide that emitted toxic chemicals into the air in 1987, according to a new environmental report issued in conjunction with a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study of toxic pollution. Orange County, however, was not among the top 25 counties in the nation ranked for toxic air contaminants by the EPA. The agency did not name any industrial plants in its summary, referring only to the individual counties. However, a separate report prepared by the Natural Resources Defense Council on the basis of the EPA data listed the 12 Orange County plants as among U.S. firms emitting cancer-causing chemicals or suspected carcinogens.
