Remediation of Area IV and the Northern Buffer Zone of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory
DOE issued a Draft EIS that analyzes the potential environmental impacts of alternatives for conducting cleanup activities in Area IV of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory and the adjoining Northern Buffer Zone, located in Ventura County, California. Remediation is needed to clean up residual chemicals and radionuclides from historical DOE operations at the Energy Technology Engineering Center in Area IV, in compliance with regulations, orders, and agreements. The alternatives analyzed in the Draft EIS involve the disposition of remaining DOE facilities and support buildings, remediation of soil and groundwater, and disposal of all resulting waste at existing licensed or permitted facilities in a manner that is protective of the environment and the health and safety of the public and workers.
