Description

The article investigates how a Department of Defense contractor, Wyle Laboratories, spent the past 50 years conducting "hazardous military tests and mishandling its toxic waste." The site is also located in the small community of Norco, where the residents suffer from thyroid disease cluster believed to be caused by the lab's contamination. The article discovers that many of the health and environmental regulators who agreed that Wyle Laboratories was safe enough to be in the community had "never set foot on the property."
