"Radioactive Contamination at Dayton Canyon from the Santa Susana Filed Laboratory" was a report that was "deeply flawed" as the result of the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) "misrepresenting the underlying data", as well as "poor protection levels and an a priori assumption that there can't be contamination coming from Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL). It should be rejected."

Correspondence and context for this failed study, and the ways the Committee to Bridge the Gap and its researchers were led astray by aforementioned parties, is documented in detail here.

This research was completed money allocated during Round 6 of the Citizens’ Monitoring and Technical Assessment Fund (MTA Fund). Clark University was named conservator of these works.
