Former Santa Susana Field Laboratory
Public Land Alliance Network
An alliance network of conservation-environmental organizations, City/County Planners, and related government agencies...
...dedicated to a balance of public and private land to support a sustainable life for humans, pets & horses, and wildlife.
From NASA's Comparative Analysis of
for the Soils at Santa Susana Field Laboratory
"The more aggressive cleanup of the site that would occur under the background cleanup (more soil removal, more trucks entering the site, more emissions, more road miles, more soil to dispose of in landfills, etc.) could result in an increase in traffic accidents and spills and more habitat modification, as well as disturbance of wildlife and more impacts to archeological resources, all of which might result in reduced net benefits when compared to the risk‐based cleanup scenario." p. 5-1
SSMPA's mission is to preserve and protect the Simi Hills, Santa Susana Mountains, and regional open space.
