The community has an important opportunity Wednesday to make Tracy a safer place to live and work. The public?s voice is needed to make sure that deadly toxic and radioactive wastes, which have seeped into the soil and water at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory?s Site 300 on Corral Hollow Road, are cleaned up.

Site 300, which is used by the Livermore lab to test high explosives and nuclear weapon components, is a federal Superfund cleanup location. The pollution at Site 300, 8 miles southwest of Tracy, is among the worst in the country. This will be the public?s last chance to comment on the site-wide proposed plan for the cleanup.
