On Wednesday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold a community meeting to discuss the final results of its radiological investigation at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL).

EPA has officially completed its field work and has collected a total of 3,735 soil and sediment samples and 215 groundwater and surface water samples which were analyzed for radioactive contaminates.

A final report will be completed by the end of December 2012. In addition to sharing the results of this investigation, EPA will discuss the transition of documents and final data to the California Department of Toxic Substances Control, the lead agency on the site, for the next phase of the investigation and cleanup.
