More on Historic Agreement to Clean Up SSFL

September 4th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Santa Susana Field Lab

Christina Walsh of  emailed the following, Friday (8-3) afternoon, in response to the news that California DTSC, and DOE and NASA have agreed “in principle” on the cleanup of the Santa Susana Field Lab in Simi Valley:

“This is a landmark day and the most wonderful news I could possibly hear.  Thank you NASA and DOE and DTSC for agreeing to moving forward in a smart and productive way.  This really is the Norm (Riley, former head of the SSFL cleanup for DTSC, until a little over a year ago – editor) solution, of skipping risk-assessment and going straight to background (what is considered the norm in measurements of various potentially harmful contaminants, and what cleanup is measured against – editor), also skipping years and millions (of dollars), and arriving ontime at 2017.  Thanks for allowing this to finally move forward!” 

For a link to the LA Times story, go to the immediately previous post, which is on this SSFL agreement too.  To read the VC Star story by Teresa Rochester, that appears in the 9-4 paper:  To read the Daily News story by Tony Castro that is in the 9-4 paper:
