Washington, DC — In response to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the clean-up of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL), Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-CA) issued the following statement:

“I am deeply disappointed with the Department of Energy’s proposed clean-up decision, which breaks the department’s prior commitments under the Administrative Orders on Consent (AOCs). Clean-up of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory is a high public health and safety priority, and my involvement with the clean-up goes back to my time in the California Assembly as a principal co-author of SB990, state legislation to require the full clean-up. I urge the California Department of Toxic Substances Control to ensure that the AOCs are upheld.”
