Rocketdyne Recreation Center

The Rocketdyne Recreation Center is located to the north of Roscoe Boulevard on Farralone Avenue in West Hills.  It is approximately two to three miles from the Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL).

In 1997, personnel from the Lawrence Livermore National laboratory (LLNL) conducted soil sampling at the Rocketdyne Recreation Center and analyzed the soil for cesium-137.

The LLNL report concluded that, "sampling and analysis did not reveal any evidence that cesium-137 present in these soils could have been derived from local contamination.  Furthermore the levels and cesium-137 soil inventories over the study site can be adequately explained by direct deposition of global fallout through the period 1945-1997. This suggests that the data is derived from "background" concentrations."
