CBG Releases Report Showing Radioactive Waste Was Sent to Recyclers and Landfills Not Licensed or Designed for Nuclear Waste
The Committee to Bridge the Gap has released a 114 page study by Daniel Hirsch and Ethan Miska disclosing that the California Department of Toxic Substances Control and the Department of Public Health have been approving–without environmental review or opportunity for public comment–proposals by the Boeing Company to demolish radioactive structures at the Santa Susana Field Lab (SSFL). SSFL is the site of a long-secret partial nuclear meltdown CBG revealed in 1979, and there is widespread contamination from decades of other accidents, spills and releases. The CBG study shows that Boeing’s own measurements indicate radioactive contamination in the structures torn down, yet the radioactive waste from them has been shipped to metal recyclers and landfills not licensed or designed for radioactive waste.
