The Environmental Protection Agency is expanding the monitoring of ground water in the Whittier Narrows area of the San Gabriel Valley Area Superfund site. Cost of the five-year plan was estimated at $5.2 million, including $900,000 for sampling existing wells and $4.3 million for installing and sampling new wells, federal EPA officials said. The water is safe and does not need to be cleaned up, but expansion of monitoring was approved to ensure health and environmental protection, the EPA said.
