San Diego school removing contaminated dirt

SAN DIEGO (AP) - A San Diego County school district says it's just about finished removing a 10,000-ton pile of contaminated dirt that was mysteriously dumped near a campus.

KGTV-TV (bit.ly/PvdC2W) says Sweetwater Union High School District has nearly completed removing dirt containing low levels of lead and pesticides.

The dirt was dumped last year beside the sports field at Southwest High School in San Diego. The district says it's unclear who authorized the dumping or for what purpose.

It paid about $500,000 to have the dirt trucked to a landfill in Los Angeles County.
