The story of Runkle Canyon and the fight against what turned out to be called Arroyo Vista at the Woodlands is far from over. More revelations are surfacing. EnviroReporter.com broke the Runkle Canyon contamination story in Los Angeles CityBeat with “Neighborhood Threat” March 10, 2005. Soon an amazing group of Simi Valley residents rose up to challenge Runkle Canyon’s developers knowing that people needed to know what they literally unearthed which the City of Simi Valley and Department of Toxic Substances Control ignored and dismissed.
The Radiation Rangers of StopRunkledyne formed in 2006 and led the fight against developing Runkle Canyon because of high radiation and chemical findings. Above is the June 21, 2007 Los Angeles CityBeat cover story “The Radiation Rangers – Developers of Simi Valley’s Runkle Canyon claim the water tested clean. Then a band of citizens discovered super-toxic goo seeping from the ground.”
Following are links to archived pages of their information and jam-packed archived website StopRunkledyne. Nearly all the links work making this a go-to news source regarding Runkle Canyon and Rocketdyne. The Radiation Rangers are still active helping media and attending the Santa Susana Field Laboratory Inter-Agency Work Group.
