(San Francisco) March 6, 2007 - Bob Sarvey, a Tracy, California citizen/activist looked at the plan of the Lawrence Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab and said that it was wrong. Today the giant nuclear weapons lab waited until the last minute and withdrew the controversial nuclear radiation spreading proposal.

Bob Sarvey said in a prepared statement late Tuesday afternoon, March 6, 2007 "I just received a call from the head man at the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control district, Seyed Saderin. He has decided under intense pressure from the Lab to cancel the Site 300 permit and the hearing is off. WE have achieved a major but temporary victory. I am sure that the lab will try again and the DU explosions continue throughout the country and the world. But tonight let us savor one small victory."

The controversial and secretive Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab detonates in the open air about 200 radioactive "dirty bombs" a year creating deadly and radioactive uranium gas in the heavily populated San Francisco Bay and Monterey Bay Areas of California. About 10 million people live and work within the large metropolitan areas.

The University of California "managed" Weapons Lab had requested to go from detonating 1000 pounds of radioactive uranium and tritium bombs a year to 8000 pounds a year on November 12, 2006. The request was approved by the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control Board in nearby Modesto, California.

Bob Sarvey objected and filed an appeal. So did a large housing development near the radioactive bomb site in Tracy, California. The developer also withdrew from the case today, March 6, 2007.

Manhattan Project and Nuclear Weapons Lab retired staff scientist Marion Fulk said today about the withdrawal by the Nuclear Weapons Lab "Now they can put those deadly radioactive explosions that release uranium and tritium into the atmosphere underground."
