Is Irvine Contaminated by Toxic Waste? In addition to the Woodbridge community, other Irvine neighborhoods are likely impacted including Westpark, Deerfield, Oak Creek, Orangetree, Quail Hill, and nearby areas. Realtors and developers in Irvine continue to try to sell properties to people in hopes that prospective buyers won't discover that Irvine’s land and water is contaminated. But since nobody would likely buy a home that sits atop of what essentially is toxic waste, these homes are basically worthless. According to tenant rights, owners of these properties are required to disclose such matters to those who live atop a contaminated soil. When property owners do not comply, tenants or new home owners can contact their bank or file a law suit. The toxic waste spreading from the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station are getting worse by the day, as the TCE in the soil travels three feet further into Orange County every day. "The Great Park is a concept that contains 1,347 acres, it has many elements that will we believe will be of great value to the community and to the region. It will have many elements such as a sports park, museums, play and ball fields of various types. The whole idea is to provide the community with a great metropolitan park of the 21st Century." Local leaders are continually assuring residents that the contamination is too far down and too low of a concentration to pose a health risk. In most cases, residents of Irvine do not have a clue about the contamination, which shows how well the city of Irvine, realtors, and developers have done in keeping the matter quiet.But this cannot be kept quiet for too long when sickness and cancer incidences start to increase. In hopes of the future, Irvine will come clean about this matter and find a prompt solution.
