A metal recycler must halt all discharges of a soupy waste that has over 30 years created a 40-foot slag heap on its beachfront property. The Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board on Thursday gave Halaco Engineering Inc. nine months to convert to a system that would remove water from the slurry generated by its smelting plant.

A metal recycler is leaking a toxic chemical into valuable coastal wildlife habitat and has released radioactive substances that may have reached a storm drain that empties in the Pacific, according to state regulators. Citing sloppy housekeeping, state water quality officials investigating the plant said they issued notice to Halaco Engineering Inc. this week for six types of violations that were discovered during a pair of inspections last summer.

Environmental activists and local officials Friday hailed the state's decision to crack down on the Halaco metal recycler that for years has been accused of polluting wetlands along the shoreline near Oxnard. However, a representative for Halaco Engineering Inc. denied that the plant was environmentally harmful and said the state's action could threaten the company's survival.

Ventura County leaders joined environmentalists Tuesday in urging state regulators to crack down on an Oxnard metal recycling center, one of the biggest sources of air and water pollution complaints in the county. Critics demanded that the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board force Halaco Engineering Inc. to comply with its permit, which regulates the soupy waste the company discharges from its plant daily.

Start with ammonia gas from a Camarillo power plant. Add pesticide from an Oxnard farm, solvent from a Thousand Oaks dry cleaner, a puff of diesel exhaust from a truck in Moorpark and a pinch of paint vapors from a remodeled house in Ojai. Mix with fog and sea breezes, then bake with sunshine over Simi Valley. That is the recipe for a chemical soup that pollutes Ventura County skies.
