University of California will spend about $1 million to clean up toxic PCBs at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, according to an agreement reached with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, once were sold for use in insulating liquids in electrical transformers or capacitors.
