Tests: 4 more workers contaminated at NM nuke dump
Question of the Day
CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) - The Department of Energy says tests show four more workers were contaminated with low levels of radiation during a leak at federal government’s underground nuclear waste dump.
Officials also said Monday that they’re planning to get a crew underground Tuesday for the first time since the Valentine’s Day accident at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in southeastern New Mexico.
The DOE says a total of 21 workers received low doses of radiation, all well below levels deemed unsafe.
On Tuesday, the DOE said it plans to send a team of team of eight experts into the half-mile deep mine to begin setting up bases from which they can start investigating what caused the leak.
The dump is the nation’s only permanent underground repository for low-level radioactive waste from nuclear weapons facilities.
