West Valley is highly erosion-prone and climate change is making it worse. In 2009 there was a huge flood that eroded nearby streams closer to the buried waste. Here are comments submitted in March 2013 on this danger. For over 2 years DOE and NYSERDA have failed to discuss and consider public suggestions made for studies to be done at West Valley. In August 2013, groups will meet with DOE and NYSERDA to discuss these and the failure to truly incorporate dangers of climate change into ongoing studies and planning.
