That large tanker truck stored on El Camino Real is leaking liquide every day. Any person can walk by and see the long-term stains on the street pavement. The leking liquid is dissolving the asphalt street surface and washing into Matadero Creek with every rain.

No resident should have to live near a plant that could possibly harm their health. Chemical plants should be located well away from residential neighborhoods.

Redwood City is working with SIMS in harbor area for conformance to EPA standards. Moffat Field is a super fund site with EPA participation in the clean-up.
Palo Alto needs to get the EPA involved - or someone does - to test and put clean-up plan in place. I don't think PA staff is knowledgeable in this topic - the city should step up the pace so that the company is cleaning up and in conformance with EPA standards.
