Dust in the Wind
Simi Valley still looking for answers about Runkle Canyon radiation

LA City Beat
March ?, 2007

Last fall, spurred on by citizens alarmed at the impending development of picturesque Runkle Canyon and the cloud of strontium-90-laden dust it could launch over the Simi and San Fernando valleys, the Simi Valley City Council did something quite extraordinary – it asked for help.

City letters went out to three government agencies seeking answers about the high levels of the radionuclide Sr-90 in the soil of the broad canyon. The appeals to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), and California Department of Health Services (CDHS) requested "an independent review of data and reports related to potential or actual presence of strontium 90 in Runkle Canyon and to advise whether development of the sites poses a public health risk."
