Field lab clean-up continues Feds say 'hot' remnants of one nuclear reactor removed
By Kerry Cavanaugh Los Angeles Daily News December 2, 2004
Facing increasing scrutiny over the clean-up of radioactive contamination, Department of Energy and the Boeing Corp. officials told neighbors of the Santa Susana Field Lab on Thursday night that all "hot" remnants of one former nuclear reactor have been removed.
The DOE presented the results of the Building 59 demolition and clean-up during a public meeting held at the Grand Vista Hotel in Simi Valley. The demolition was closely watched because Building 59 was one of three remaining facilities at the Simi Hills lab with radioactive contamination.
"I think this is a major achievement on the site," said Mike Lopez, DOE project manager.
Building 59 housed one of seven reactors used in nuclear research from 1959 through 1969 to develop reliable power for space exploration and satellites. The building may have been a source of the recent radioactive tritium contamination found in groundwater.
