Below is a note from US EPA regarding the Future...
The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is currently
reviewing our public outreach strategy with the goal of improving opportunities
for robust discussions on the issues associated with the investigation and the
cleanup at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL).
This is an opportune time for this review as US EPA is ending its role as
facilitator and sponsor of the quarterly Inter-Agency Workgroup meetings. In
line with the comments that Director Raphael shared with you at the November PPG
meeting, we want to ensure our entire outreach effort considers the needs of the
entire community and uses the community's time wisely and efficiently while
enhancing communication and participation. As we do this we will all move
forward toward meeting our common goals of fully carrying out the Administrative
Orders on Consent (US Department of Energy and NASA), and the 2007 Consent Order
(Boeing) to and clean up the entire SSFL.
Because we are still in the process of reviewing our efforts, we have postponed
the February 15 Inter-Agency Workgroup meeting. We hope to have more information
to share with you soon.
