Wait a minute, stop making Intel out to be the bad guys
You know, I don't usually find myself sticking up for large corporations, but the last sentence in the article sums it up.
"Chandler residents say Intel's fix can't arrive soon enough, and many of them complain that they weren't properly warned about the true nature of Intel's waste puddles."
So now it's supposed to be Intel's fault when builders/realtors don't properly disclose these facts to prospective buyers? I don't think so.
Intel has been manufacturing there for years. Chandler is lucky to have them and Motorola providing a pretty good number of decent jobs.
Had Intel moved in after the homeowners and caused this problem, it would be a different story, but they didn't.
I'm at a loss as to why Chandler (or the state?) didn't kick in the dollars to build a buffer zone around that area. One would think they had to know about the odors, especially if they're THAT bad. The same thing is being done in an attempt to protect the Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, though obviously for different reasons.
That they're builiding a system to deal with the odors speaks louder to the type of people they are versus those who may have sold these homes without the proper disclosures.
