Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center

Join us on February 4 to learn new developments about the contamination and cleanup at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory. We will discuss:
- Proposed changes by the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board that would further weaken Boeing’s SSFL permit and allow more continuing migration of contamination in surface water runoff from SSFL. Learn more about the permit.
- A recent decision by California Superior Court rejecting Boeing’s request to dump radioactive debris in sites not licensed for such waste, with no oversight by regulatory agencies. Read about the court ruling here.
- Communities near other contaminated sites that are also impacted by the failure of the state toxics department to protect them – and how we are working together to fight these problems. We are not alone. Read the People’s Senate report.
- Cleanup myths propagated by Boeing and its surrogates—claims of “moonscaping,” exaggerated soil volume estimates and truck numbers.
And more! Please join us for some straight talk about SSFL and learn what you can do to ensure its contamination is truly cleaned up.
