I am buyer considering one of the properties in the Echelon project off of Fabian Way in Palo Alto (built by SummerHill Homes 2009). In doing my due diligence, I came across some alarming history of a tetrachloroethene (PCE) discharge in nearby 3825 Fabian Way - less than 0.5 miles away!
Public records indicate that harmful chemicals have been detected in the groundwater and soil of nearby properties.
A few sources can be found here:
However, when I Googled various permutations of the address, community name, and incident key words, I found no explicit mentions of the residential area being affected.
An experienced family contact who has been in the Peninsula real estate business for many years advised against the property for this reason. Any other thoughts from people who know the area well?
