contaminated area burned woolsey fire, petition to clean up Simi valley toxic nuclear waste dump, SSFL woolsey fire, Woolsey fire santa susana Field Laboratory
FROM — PHYSICIANS FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY LOS ANGELES and Rocketdyne Cleanup Coalition
Last week, a fire broke out, at SSFL (Santa Susana Field Laboratories), burning hundreds of acres of vegetation growing in contaminated soil. That fire obviously released some of those contaminants and transported them offsite in the smoke. It is impossible to burn a contaminated site without releasing some of that contamination. Had the Responsible Parties met their obligations for full cleanup by last year, there wouldn’t be concern about the release of contamination in such a fire for those portions of SSFL that burned. And for those that didn’t, the failure to perform full cleanup as promised means continued risk any time a new fire might occur. *Santa Susan Field Laboratory is the site of several nuclear meltdowns and is a SUPERFUND toxic site.
