Coalition urges complete West Valley cleanup

A coalition urged the public Tuesday to contact state and federal officials in the next week to demand full cleanup of the state's largest nuclear waste site at West Valley.

Surrounded by about 20 people holding mops, buckets and brooms, speakers assembled outside the New York State Energy and Research Development Authority offices in the Larkin at Exchange Building in Buffalo. They called on the agency and the federal Department of Energy to support the complete cleanup of the West Valley nuclear waste site to avoid future radioactive contamination of Lake Erie drinking water.

"We all know the West Valley site is in need of a cleanup - not just a dustpan cleanup, not a lets-deal-with-it-tomorrow kind of cleanup, not a coverup cleanup, not a look-the-other-way kind of cleanup," said Todd Gates a Seneca Nation of Indians official.
