Orange County will ask the Department of the Navy to examine 56 additional areas of potential contamination at the former El Toro Marine base, including testing soil in several of those areas. Among the spots added by county environmental consultants to the 929 existing "locations of concern" are the base's four runways, which aren't on the Navy's list of sites for further examination and cleanup. Two of the runways stretch 10,000 feet; the others are 8,000 feet.
