Report: PG&E searching for toxins under SF Marina District homes

PG&E truck

PG&E is holding a public meeting Wednesday to update residents of San Francisco's Marina District about possible toxins under their homes.

The Chronicle reports PG&E has been testing soil samples at the sites of two plants that were destroyed in the 1906 earthquake. The facilities manufactured a fuel similar to natural gas.

One plant was located along Fillmore and Alhamabra streets. The other was about a block away along Bay Street.

This summer, PG&E will look for chemical contamination in the bay floor.

Wednesday night's meeting will be held at Fort Mason's Building A from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
