The December 14 deadline to submit comments on DTSC’s draft PEIR for the SSFL cleanup has passed. Many thanks to the thousands of community members who fought back against Boeing’s unscrupulous greenwashing campaign and instead told DTSC to uphold the 2010 cleanup agreements that it signed with DOE and NASA to clean up all detectable contamination in their operational areas and DTSC’s commitment to require Boeing to cleanup to a comparable level. You can still take action by signing the #1million parents petition and by contacting your elected officials and tell them you want SSFL fully cleaned up, as promised.
