Summary

Berkeley Nano Lab in Strawberry Canyon Save Strawberry Creek Watershed Community Speaks Out on Nano Technology at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory Berkeley, CA (January 28, 2004) Environmentalists Question the Expansion of the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab into the Sensitive Strawberry Creek Watershed -- Molecular Foundry Construction Begins without Environmental Impact Report -- Nearby Hayward Fault Remains Ominously Quiet -- Environmentalists, concerned residents, members of city commissions, and elected city officials will be on hand at the entrance to Lawrence Berkeley National Labs (LBNL) on January 29th and January 30th to greet LBNL guests attending the Molecular Foundry User Workshop and Molecular Foundry Ground-Busting ceremonies with a message that the destruction of a sensitive watershed in an earthquake prone area is too high a price to pay for a potentially dangerous and unproven technology that may do more harm than the miraculous good its proponents claim is possible. The planned Molecular Foundry is sited in the fragile Strawberry Creek Watershed and within 600 meters of the Alquist-Priolo Earthquake Fault Zone, a zone in which State law prohibits the construction of facilities intended for human occupancy. LBNL was also able to avoid conducting a full Environmental Impact Report (EIR), instead producing a much less rigorous Environmental Assessment.
