Businesses throughout California are reporting steady drops in the amount of toxic chemicals they release into the environment -- except in San Diego. While California companies have cut their toxic pollution by 25% since 2001, businesses in San Diego County have reported a 28 percent increase in pollutants. The increase has been traced to four facilities: Camp Pendleton, NASSCO, a Sony plant in Rancho Bernardo, and GE Osmonics in Vista.
