The deadline to submit comments on DTSC’s draft PEIR for the SSFL cleanup has passed. DTSC projects that the final EIR will be released in the fall of 2018, as well as a Corrective Measures Study and Decision Document that will be open for public comment. You can take action now by signing the #1million parents petition and by contacting your elected officials and telling them you want SSFL fully cleaned up, as promised.
