City of San Jose Files Lawsuit against Monsanto Company over PCB Contamination

The City of San Jose took an important step in preserving the vitality and health of the San Francisco Bay. San Jose filed a lawsuit to hold Monsanto Company responsible for PCB contamination that finds its way into the City’s storm water that flows into San Francisco Bay. The State Water Resources Control Board recently issued a tentative order affecting San Jose’s storm water operations and potentially reducing the Total Maximum Daily Load specifically aimed at PCBs. PCBs are man-made chemical compounds that were produced by Monsanto Company in the United States from the early 1930's until the late 1970's, when Congress banned the production and use of PCBs based on their danger to human and environmental health. During those five decades, Monsanto’s PCBs were incorporated into a variety of products and applications including electrical equipment, paints, caulks, and other building materials. According to the lawsuit, Monsanto knew then that PCBs were toxic and could not be contained as they readily escaped into the environment finding their way into bays, oceans, lakes, rivers, streams, soil, and air. Although Monsanto recognized internally that PCBs were becoming “a global contaminant,” it concealed this information and increased production of these profitable compounds. The State Water Resources Control Board has determined that the presence of PCBs in San Jose storm water threatens San Francisco Bay as a habitat for fish and wildlife, impairs its use for recreational opportunities, compromises its quality as a tourist and convention destination, and interferes with its use and enjoyment by the people of the State of California.
