Amount of nuclear waste in Parks Township could remain unknown until 2031

today  homeland security guards the property

Secrecy, lack of documentation and inattention to warnings may have led the Army Corps of Engineers to grossly underestimate the amount of highly radioactive uranium in the nuclear waste dump in Parks Township.
..
What's in that dump could be key to solving the more than 50-year-old mystery of what happened to about 200 pounds of highly enriched uranium NUMEC couldn't account for in a 1965 inventory of nuclear material at its plants.
..
The Corps, though, refuses to say how much material was recovered nor will it comment on the exact type of material found because the Department of Defense has classified portions of the cleanup as secret for “national security” reasons.

The Corps says it will release an inventory of what the new cleanup finds when it is complete — in 2031.

.....

Both men said the Corps cleanup plan grossly underestimated all of the nuclear waste they may encounter. Shapiro confirmed as much during exclusive interviews with the Tribune-Review before his death.

Even the Nuclear Regulatory Commission believed there was more uranium in the dump than the Corps was estimating.

Is missing radioactive material still buried in Parks?

a dig in the mid-1960s, conducted after NUMEC came up 200 pounds short of highly enriched uranium during an inventory, was ineffective.
....
“There were inexperienced people who were on the job for two days waving a Geiger counter over material exhumed from the burial ground,” Zerby said.

“Did they know what they were doing? Absolutely not. Was it conceivable to miss quantities? You bet.”

......
That 2014 probe found, among other things, that:

• The contractor hired by the Army Corps of Engineers mishandled radioactive waste dug up from the site, endangering the safety of workers.

• Undocumented waste from so-called “black” government projects could be buried at the site.

• A previous dig to look for highly enriched uranium at the site was inadequate.

The Corps' previous contractor mishandled some nuclear waste and unearthed greater amounts of “complex nuclear materials” than expected, according to then-Corps Col. Butch Graham. That material was so hard to identify that it had to be specially handled and was shipped to an undisclosed nuclear waste facility.

The report concluded that the cleanup was “beyond the scope of (the Army Corps') remediation process.”

Documents obtained by the Tribune-Review through a federal Freedom of Information Act request show that

......

Even NUMEC did not record those projects in its official company documentation, instead recording them elsewhere because of their secrecy.

....

Ameno, 65, of Hyde Park also testified. Her collection of about 3 million pages of documents about NUMEC's operations, she said, indicates the waste dump contains more dangerous materials than the site was licensed to take.

Nuclear material doled out 'like it was candy' 50 years ago

Alvarez doesn't subscribe to the diversion theory. When he worked at the DOE and received CIA assessments, he said, “You can't get enamored with the information. You've got to realize intelligence isn't necessarily the truth. It's an art form.”
....

“Imagine sending out many tons of (highly enriched uranium) to countries around the world for 10 years,” Alvarez said. “We would never do that today.”

But the United States did, sending tons of the stuff around the world during the 1960s and 1970s under a program started by President Dwight Eisenhower called “Atoms for Peace.”

.....

“They were doling out tons of fissile materials like it was candy,” he said.

hey Biggs

this area was a hot bed for ufo sightings..(kecksburg is a mere stone's throw)
not so much anymore..we've got other stuff  but  you do have to wonder if the sightings were because they could see the glow?..bwhahahahahahah
and now we kinda wonder if it was the cause for so many other things going on with the 'critters'....
check out Stan Gordon's site for  some things...but a lot aren't talked about.
me, personally... i'm waiting to see one of those thunderbirds..

maybe some other  hot spots for ufo's should check what else is going on around those areas...just a thought

That is a good thought, the ETs would probably know exactly how much and where our uranium was thrown. 

I want to see a thunderbird as well BTW. xo
