U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.) asked a House Appropriations Committee to provide $3 million for Glendale, Calif., to develop the technology to remove chromium 6 from contaminated water wells. The $3 million will be added to the $6 million being sought from the state to develop a pilot treatment plant capable of removing contaminants such as chromium 6, officials said.
