[KB Home’s Runkle Canyon development is now called Arroyo Vista at the Woodlands]

After the Los Angeles CityBeat & ValleyBeat cover story “The Radiation Rangers” came out June 21, 2007, the City of Simi Valley decided to go up Runkle Canyon [now called Arroyo Heights at the Woodlands] and test it for itself. This testing for Title 22 hazardous metals, which includes the arsenic, nickel and vanadium found at shocking levels by the Rangers and tested previously, took water and soil samples which were split to be tested by Pat-Chem Laboratories and another lab of the City’s choosing.
