Members of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL) community intend to establish a Community Advisory Group (CAG) for the SSFL Project. The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is assisting the community in forming this CAG after receiving a petition signed by more than 50 people.
About the Santa Susana Field Laboratory
The Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL) is located 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles in southeastern Ventura County, near the crest of the Simi Hills at the western border of the San Fernando Valley.
A former rocket engine test and nuclear research facility, the 2,849-acre field laboratory is currently the focus of a comprehensive environmental investigation and cleanup program, conducted by Boeing, the United States Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and overseen by the Department of Toxic Substances Control.
Conditions for Membership
Members serving on a CAG are volunteers who attend CAG meetings and participate in the duties of a CAG. Duties and responsibilities will include listening to presentations from technical teams and other experts, reviewing and commenting on technical documents and developing recommendations to share with DTSC which reflect opinions of members of the communities the CAG represents. Members will be expected to facilitate the exchange of information and/or concerns between the community they represent and DTSC.
SSFL CAG members can expect to devote a minimum of 12 days per year to participate in SSFL CAG activities. SSFL CAG membership must be reflective of the diversity and interests of the community surrounding the SSFL Project site.
