County officials acknowledged Wednesday that a mistake was made when county staff hired an engineering firm for $75,000 to work on the El Toro airport project without first consulting the Board of Supervisors. Nearly two weeks ago, county staff hired Geo Syntech to analyze landfill sites at the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station, which will be turned over to the county in fall 1999.

The supercharged discussion about building a major commercial airport at the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station usually focuses on noise, safety and traffic. But perhaps the greatest unknown at the base is not what might happen above the ground, but what could be buried beneath it. More than $200 million has been spent over 15 years to clean up the base, and millions more must be spent to rid the site of hazardous wastes, cover two large landfill sites and dispose of heavy underground fuel tanks.
