Public Workshops Set On Latest Cleanup Plans For Toxic Waste Site Near Simi Valley

Posted on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 11:38am

The state is holding a pair of workshops later this week as part of planning efforts for cleanup of toxic waste from a former nuclear testing and rocket lab near Simi Valley.

The State Department of Toxic Substances Control is developing a plan for cleaning up soil from the Santa Susana Field Laboratory.

The agency wants public input on how the soil should be removed from the site, and what routes should be used.

Boeing owns most of the site, with the remainder owned by NASA.  The state agency is overseeing cleanup.

The first workshop will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, at the Simi Valley Senior Center.  The second will be from 10 a.m., to 1 p.m. Saturday, at El Camino Real Charter High School, in Woodland Hills.
