Public Interest Groups Take On Newsom Administration Over Backtracking On Cleanup Of Radioactivity At Santa Susana Site

“In an appeal before the Court of Appeal in Sacramento to be heard on Monday, the Newsom Administration will be challenged over positions that breach a longstanding agreement to require all radioactive waste from the Santa Susana Field Lab be disposed of at sites licensed and designed for such waste. …

The positions taken by two state agencies in the pending appeal over the issue would allow Boeing to demolish radioactive structures and dispose of the resulting debris in unequipped landfills and metal recycling centers without any oversight. The case was brought by Physicians for Social Responsibility-Los Angeles, the Southern California Federation of Scientists, Committee to Bridge the Gap, and Consumer Watchdog.”
