Monday: Meeting on SLAC clean-up plan


Local residents are invited to attend a meeting on a proposed plan to deal with groundwater pollution at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The meeting will be held Monday, May 17, in the Menlo Park Library, at 6 p.m. The library is located at 800 Alma Street, in the Civic Center complex.

The meeting, required by state law as part of the clean-up process, will be hosted by the California Regional Water Quality Board. It is designed to provide information on a plan to "remediate" groundwater pollution at four different sites on the SLAC campus, off Sand Hill Road, and to allow people to ask questions about the plan.

Formal comments on the plan will be solicited through 5 p.m. on June 4. The plan is "on file" at the library's reference desk, according to a SLAC press release.
