Two years ago this summer, crews working at the sprawling Department of Energy campus in Kentucky noticed high levels of radioactive "green salt" in one of the buildings.
"This is how the presence of green salt was identified," Tim Echland, a spokesman for the project office, wrote in an email to The Times responding to questions about the incident.
Mr. Echland said the lack of monitoring referred to the fact that employees were not tracked electronically or through surveillance inside the facility.
