2000, the hit movie "Erin Brockovich" told the story leading up to a 1996 court settlement in which San Francisco based Pacific Gas Electric Co. doled out $333 million to more than 600 Hinkley residents. Many of those people moved away long ago. There has been a steady exodus people from Hinkley once home to about 2,000 ever since. And many more residents say they would leave if someone would buy their house. But that chromium 6 plume has killed Hinkley's resale housing market. PG E has been buying a few properties above the contaminated Prada Tote Bag 2016

plume for years. The effort intensified first in November 2010 and was beefed up early this year, when PG E announced it would be willing to discuss home purchases for any resident living within a mile of the known plume boundaries, if their water well showed any detectable level of chromium 6. Previously, the utility required wells show concentrations of chromium 6 above 3.1 parts per billion. The change opens up the purchase program to more than 300 Hinkley homes, PG E officials have said. Hinkley's contamination problems stem from a common practice in the era before the cancer causing properties of chromium 6 were known. Since November 2010, PG E has made offers on 90 properties, 48 of which were accepted, Jeff Smith, a PG E spokesman, said last week. Of those accepted, 41 have closed and seven are in escrow, Smith said. Since the new purchase program guidelines were announced, interest in selling has increased considerably, Smith said. PG E is also offering residents in the expanded plume boundaries an option to receive a filtration system that would purify their water after it leaves their well but before it enters their house. During the 1950s and 1960s, PG E, like many companies in that era, used chromium 6 to control algae Prada Blue Bag and protect metal against rust, at its natural gas pumping station in Hinkley. The cooling tower water, laced with chromium 6, was periodically emptied into an unlined pit, where the chemical seeped into the groundwater. The Kearneys say they were repeatedly told by PG E officials that they had nothing to worry about because their property was several miles north of ground zero for the contaminated underground plume the compressor station. From other residents, the Kearneys began picking up that the plume was migrating north to where they lived. Data from test wells drilled last summer show the plume has migrated well north of where the Kearneys had lived and some of those extreme northern wells have shown chromium concentrations far above the 3.1 parts per billion mark, a figure said by one study to be the level of naturally occurring chromium 6 in Hinkley's groundwater. But that study has been hotly contested by residents and scientists on several fronts and is under review. Speaking out For the Kearneys, going to one of the many community meetings held at the Hinkley School to update residents on the water plume reinforced stories about the northward migration with maps showing that growth. Alarmed, the Kearneys decided to have their well tested. To their surprise, chromium 6 showed up at 2.6 parts per billion in late 2010. At that point, the Kearneys decided they wanted out. And thus began a campaign at public meetings, speaking out about health issues, problems with receiving enough bottled water from PG E, well water flow difficulties and conflicting information provided by various PG E employees. "(Mentally) I see this place bulldozed down," Elaine Kearney said in an interview at the couple's Hinkley home in the summer 2011. Elaine Kearney's oldest daughter has been battling lung cancer for several years, despite the fact that she never smoked. Although the cancer had been in remission, doctors recently discovered it had come back in the lungs and metastasized into her bones and other locations. The Kearneys' daughter, Keri Kirkham, 42, has given up her Victorville apartment and she and her 9 year old daughter Brenna have moved into the couple's new home while she completes her radiation therapy and later undergoes chemotherapy. Some of Kirkham's belongings were also part of the recent yard sale. "We should have gotten a larger house," Elaine Kearney said. She blames her repeated minor strokes on Hinkley's contaminated water and another daughter's repeated miscarriages and the severe autism of a grandson on chromium 6 as well. The couple also attribute the large tumors on the feet and chest of their white Boxer, named Pinky, as also being caused by chromium 6. Selling their house The Kearneys didn't know what to expect when they began negotiations with PG E officials, but they knew they wanted to be able to buy a comparable house somewhere else. Before making an offer, PG E hired an appraiser to determine what the value of Hinkley residents' homes would be in several nearby locations, such as Boron, Barstow Heights and Yermo. That way the plume's devaluation of Hinkley properties would be kept Prada Zip Around Wallet

APPLE VALLEY The cars seemed to arrive in clusters Friday morning. Good news for a family seeking to unload no longer needed items in a yard sale. For Greg and Elaine Kearney, it was time to downsize after 17 years in the same 3,000 square foot house. Now living near Apple Valley, the Kearneys weeks ago downsized and left behind their dream house custom built for them in 1995 which had turned into a nightmare. "I haven't looked back," Elaine Kearney said. The couple had been living in Hinkley, home to the most infamous plume of chromium 6 in the country. Other cities in California and across the country are facing this problem chemical in their water supply. But only Hinkley had its story or rather part of the story imprinted on the American public.

out of the negotiations, PG E officials have said. When the PG E representatives came to their home with the appraisal, they doubled it for their initial purchase offer. With a long background in sales, Greg Kearney and his wife acted disinterested and sent them away. But privately, it was a higher starting point than what they had been fearing. Later, PG E officials called back for a number that would entice them to sell. The couple named a high price. And negotiations began in earnest. Eventually, a selling price was reached. From that point, the Kearneys quickly found a house they wanted in Apple Valley. They asked PG E to let them have a small portion of the selling price, so they could show the owner they were serious so the house would be taken off the market. But those funds didn't come and the house was purchased by someone else. The money still hadn't been freed up for them by the time they found the house they ended up buying and were about to leave their Hinkley home to meet a move out date imposed by PG E, the couple said. But funds did arrive in time for them to cement the deal on the property just outside of Apple Valley. "Our goal is to be as accommodating as we can. We try to make the process as positive as we can," said Smith, the PG E spokesman.
