On January 13, 2000, BNL's Community Advisory Council (CAC) held a press conference at the Laboratory asking the Department of Energy to increase funding for the environmental cleanup. The CAC requested nearly $50 million over three years to cut the cleanup time in half and reduce overall costs by $18 million.
