Rocky Flats and the Jefferson Parkway: The question of safety

In Environment, Nuclear Guardianship, Plutonium, Public Health, Rocky Flats on August 9, 2012 at 3:34 am

A few weeks back the Arvada Reporter, a publication of the City of Arvada, published an article asserting that constructing the Jefferson Parkway, a proposed privately financed tollway that Arvada supports, along the eastern edge of the Rocky Flats site would be safe. This is a specious claim, despite the fact that several federal and state agencies make the same assertion. I published a response citing key reasons why this claim does not hold water. My article appeared in the electronic news outlet known as The Boulder Blue Line.
