The Department of Energy (DOE) recently released a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the SSFL cleanup in which every option proposed would breach the legally binding cleanup agreement it signed in 2010 to clean up all contamination at SSFL. DOE now proposes instead to leave between 39% and 99% of the contamination not cleaned up. DOE hearings this week demonstrated public anger at DOE proposing to break its cleanup commitments, but much more is needed to ensure that DOE will uphold its SSFL cleanup commitments.
Please join us on March 8 to learn more about:
- Pediatric cancers near SSFL and a new parents’ movement fighting for full cleanup
- The Administrative Order on Consent (AOC) agreement that DOE signed to clean up all contamination at SSFL, and how the DOE’s proposals violate it
- The amounts of contamination that DOE is proposing leaving behind, and the risks associated with the contamination
- Misinformation put forth by DOE to help it break out of the agreement
- How the community can help ensure a full cleanup of SSFL
If you haven’t yet, please submit a comment demanding that DOE honor its commitment to clean up all contamination at SSFL, and ask your friends, family, and neighbors to do so as well.
We look forward to seeing you on March 8th for some straight talk about SSFL.
