The mystery of the Brentwood nuclear and chemical dump moved that much closer to solving with the release of the 5,500+ pages of VA documents by Congressman Henry Waxman (D – Los Angeles). Syringes and medical waste including low-level radioactive materials were covered by fill material to depths of twenty to thirty feet or more at the prestigious private school.
The City of Simi Valley claims that a Tetra Tech toxics report proves that Runkle Canyon’s water and soil are safe. The Ventura County Star and Simi Valley Acorn have also reported the canyon as “safe” with continued fact-challenged coverage including a false alarm about copper, erroneous cost of the citizens’ test, and incorrect posting status of Rangers report.
Congressman’s Waxman’s office yields over 5,000 pages of VA data about the radiation dump under Brentwood School and dog park. EnviroReporter.com and Los Angeles CityBeat are analyzing this treasure trove of dump docs held by Waxman’s office since mid-December 2006.
