 Canoga Avenue Facility, Los Angeles California

 

Los Angeles postcardCanoga Avenue Facility

Canoga Avenue is a DOE facility for 1955-1960 so workers are eligible to file both Part B and Part E claims.

Canoga has a Special Exposure Cohort which covers all employees with specific cancers and at least 250 days worked from January 1, 1955 through December 31, 1960.

Under an operating contract with the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), North American Aviation performed research and development into the peaceful uses of nuclear energy at the Canoga Avenue Facility in Canoga Park, CA. This work was previously performed at North American Aviation's Downey Facility, but was moved to Canoga Avenue at the very end of 1955. Principal work performed included design, development and radiochemistry. Beryllium machining is also believed to have occurred in there.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission concluded in its 1995 report on the facility that it "was found to be free of radioactive materials which indicated that the area had been successfully remediated... in the past."
