Today’s debut also featured a new presentation detailing the toxic and radioactive pollution at Site 300, the EPA Superfund cleanup program to address the site’s contaminated soil, surface water and groundwater aquifers, and the public’s role in decision-making.

Environmental Scientist Peter Strauss and the group’s Executive Director, Marylia Kelley collaborated on the new presentation. Kelley conducted the showing today and facilitated the lively discussion that followed.
