Plutonium Found in Air at Hanford [VIDEO]

Radioactive Plutonium along with several other forms of minerals was found in the air after a recent air sample was taken by The Department Of Health near Handford on June 8th.

In an article on the Tri-City Herald’s website, John Martell , manager of the Radioactive Air Emissions Section of the Department of Health Office of Radiation Protection says The levels of contamination in the samples were “very, very low,”

“The level is interesting from a regulatory point of view, but is not a health risk” to the public, said Mike Priddy, manager of the Environmental Sciences Section of the Department of Health Office of Radiation Protection.

Hanford employees were told in a memo early Tuesday afternoon that the Department of Health considers “that the amount detected is below levels that would be of concern for human health.”

 

It’s good news for us here in Tri-Cities and the portion of the Highway 240 where the sample was taken is uninhabited as well.
