Consensus on Site 300 contamination By Michael Ellis Langley Tracy Press (CA) October 4, 2017 A citizen watchdog group and the Environmental Protection Agency agree that continued funding is the only way to make sure a polluted test site near Tracy is fully cleaned up. Tri-Valley Communities Against a Radioactive Environment, a private organization that monitors work at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, hosted a town hall Thursday evening with the EPA. The group is concerned about contamination of an 11-square-mile facility along Corral Hollow Road southwest of Tracy called Site 300. The site is managed by the Department of Energy and has been used for years for experiments to test America’s nuclear arsenal. “Various experiments were conducted. … Those included detonations of materials — depleted uranium was used. Also perchlorate, which is used in explosives. Perchlorate’s a salt that gets into water and it travels distances. It’s a thyroid disruptor,” Andrew Bain, the EPA’s project manager for the cleanup of Site 300, explained. “A lot of those chemicals were stored. Some of those chemicals got into the ground and leached into the ground.” … For the entire article, see http://www.goldenstatenewspapers.com/tracy_press/news/consensus-on-site-contamination/article_f0a354d6-a93a-11e7-892c-cbc16098e7ae.html -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center P.O.
