Rocketdyne / Atomics International Nuclear Meltdown at Santa Susana 240 Times Greater than 3 Mile Island

Alert: Deadline October 1, 2010 - Visit Teens Against Toxins and send an email to the California Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) to support the cleanup of toxic chemicals and radioactive contamination at the Rocketdyne Santa Susana Site.

According to an analysis of a five-year study by a panel of independent scientists convened years after the incident, the SRE (sodium reactor experiment) accident (at Rocketdyne / Atomics International, Santa Susana) spit out up to 240 times the amount of radiation released during the 1979 meltdown at Three Mile Island.

The nuclear meltdown described above happened in 1959 - over 50 years ago. Besides radioactive residues, toxic chemicals from decades of testing rocket motors are present at the Santa Susana facility. Amazingly, the site has yet to be listed as an NPL (National Priority List) Superfund site and, because it is a closed facility and has no current releases of toxics, it does not appear on the annual TRI (Toxic Release Inventory). Here are some background reports, articles and a video.

News

Eviroreporter article: 50 YEARS AFTER AMERICA'S WORST NUCLEAR MELTDOWN.

2009 Press Release: U.S. EPA seeks former Atomics International, Rocketdyne, Rockwell, employees for Santa Susana Field Lab radiological study.

LA Times article: Workers exposed to radiation at Santa Susana plant have greater chance of dying from the disease, UCLA researchers say. Company calls the conclusions flawed.

Enviroreporter: UCLA (1999) found that Rocketdyne workers who had high hydrazine exposures were about twice as likely as other Rocketdyne employees who worked at the site to die from lung and other cancers.
