The Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL) cleanup is at an impasse, and the stakes couldn’t be higher. If the site isn’t fully cleaned up as promised, nearby communities will continue to be at risk of exposure to SSFL’s dangerous radiation and toxic chemicals. California EPA Secretary Jared Blumenfeld will discuss cleanup efforts at a meeting of the SSFL Work Group, which will include a public Q&A with a panel of experts, community members, and elected officials. The event is sponsored by PSR-LA, Committee to Bridge the Gap, Rocketdyne Cleanup Coalition, and Parents vs SSFL.
