George Airforce Base
After some research we were informed that we had associated the wrong name with Victorville. It is not the Erin Brokovich story, but instead it is the story of the George Airforce base. The George Airforce base is about 22 miles from where the Erin Brokovich story took place. The base was closed in 1992. Jet fuel had been leaking in to the ground and had gone into the water systems making people ill. The military housing is across the road from the prison and is visible from the prison. The story is the same (that of a prison facility using water that is questionable) but the name is different.
