Perhaps Brockovich isn't as clever or effective as advertised.

The vibration of the railroad tracks could be causing the toxic plume to spread. Will never know for sure unless the railroad tracks are moved.

I dont understand why anyone would risk their health or that of their children if they knew there was the slightest chance of something like this happening. It happened before and some of these families got $1 million. Why the heck didnt they move out of the area?

There were many more people than the original 600 people that filed a lawsuit affected by this plume of Chromium 6. Many people tid to sue PGE when the original suit came to light and they were fought each step of the way by MAsry and Erin B. PG and E had capped their offer at a certain amount and the more complaintants that entered the suit would lower the amount f money the origina 600 received. ERIN NEVER WENT DOOR to DOOR like the stupid movie portrayed. I got the hell out of there as soon as I could. Ended up with numerous tumors, asthma, migraines etc. My family that lived there had cirrosis of the liver and never drank! Now PG and E is at it again. Maybe Ed Masry and Erin can come save the day again screwing more people as they get rich.

Chromium 6 chemical is coming from another plant down the street. Until someone says stop with the pollution, then and only then will it stop. The chemical comes from France and delivered to the Town of Boron, Ca.
