by Committee To Minimize Toxic Waste
Friday Aug 14th, 2009 2:44 PM
Sneaky insider footage of Building 51, the radioactive shielding blocks, workers, equipment, and a glimpse of operations of the deconstruction. Footage taken infront of the deconstruction zone, upclose. Note a sign warning of lead dust. Workers are wearing "radiation badges" - badges that are screened to see how much radioactivity has been absorbed by them and the workers wearing them, just by being in the work site.

It is expected that the radioactive waste will be taken to Clive, Utah, where EnergySolutions has a radioactive dump. EnergySolutions has come under national scrutiny for accepting radioactive waste from Italy, and storing at Clive.

By Building 51, UC Police have a mobile command sub-station setup, for unauthorized intruders.
