Cleanup of Former Nuclear Site in Simi Valley to Resume

 A decades long process reaches the final stretch.

After halting cleanup over a decade ago, the U.S. Department of Energy has once again committed to cleaning and demolishing the former nuclear research facility located in Simi Valley California, the Energy Technology Engineering Center. The federal agency is currently working with the California Department of Toxic Substance Control to help control the contaminated buildings and the environment around it.

“Under President Trump’s leadership, the Department of Energy is committed to making real and significant progress to meaningfully address the environmental legacy challenges from decades of Cold War era government research,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette.

The cleanup of the site has been in process since the 1980s, with over 200 structures having been securely demolished. Only 8 buildings have yet to be removed.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette as he ensures the cleanup effort in the State of California.
  • For President Trump as he resolves issues from legacies past.
  • For the lands of the State of California to be preserved as nuclear waste is cleaned.
