We support the full cleanup of one of Western New York’s most dangerous nuclear pollution problems. West Valley Nuclear Service Center is located 30 miles south of Buffalo, and contains hazardous waste material which poses a threat to water resources in Western New York and the Great Lakes watershed.
Tons of radioactive waste from nuclear reprocessing activities are buried on site, and there is great concern over potential leakage into groundwater, and nearby streams which drain into Lake Erie. Government reports express concern over major erosion on the banks of nearby streams, and exposure to very high radiation to unsuspecting future generations.
See the West Valley Action Network website for further information and how to share your concern to state and federal government officials, and build pressure for a full clean-up of the site.
