Join the conversation!

Protect our health & environment!

Site 300 is a high-explosive test site used for nuclear weapons development, and located one-mile west of Tracy. The U.S. EPA put Site 300 on its "Superfund" list, meaning it is one of the most heavily contaminated sites in the country.

Toxic & radioactive materials from Site 300 have been released into the air, soil, groundwater aquifers and surface waters, putting the health of the workers and our community residents at risk.

A new proposal to detonate open-air bomb blasts will put more hazardous materials into the air and increase our health risks.

We will share news & actions to take!
