You don't have to be a rocket scientist to put two and two together. I worked out there for 3 years and saw what kind of joke their health and safety department was. They don't test anything they dump into the ground, or the river, or the air. I've put my house up for sale and I'm moving my family away from here. It's too bad, too. Erwin is a great small town. But when all my neighbors are sick and dying----I'd have to be a fool to stay. Pay attention, folks. This is not a joke. NFS is dangerous. The proof is there.

No, what's killing our town is narrow minded, uneducated people like yourself who don't understand that without companies like NFS & Studsvik this town would dry up & become a ghost town. If NFS is doing these things, it is because they hire people with a "College Education" (2 semesters of Chemisty) to operate the facility who are performing these acts without the company's knowledge. If this was occurring as frequently as you mention, the EPA, NRC, etc. would have shut the place down by now. Be thankful for the job you have, or had. And the next time you feel like you want NFS or any other flourishing industry that provides hundreds, possibly thousands of jobs for this town to close its doors, take a ride over to Sneedville, Tn. No offense to anyone from or with ties to Sneedville, but I'm sure you understand my reference. I'm sure they would welcome NFS, or any industry for that matter, with open arms.

Get out of Erwin on occasion and out of you're own head & take a look around you. Erwin is a great place to live, but not a great place to provide for a family. Thanks to your and many others uneducated, small town way of thinking, there have been several other industries who have stayed away from Erwin due to this type of mentality. "Valley Nuclear", as you people called it for one, and most recently an addition to Studsvik which combined would have created close to a thousand jobs/careers for people in this town.

Do your research and try to make intelligent informed comments & try to steer clear of the small town, speak before you think mentality.

Just ask the people of Bumpass Cove if what they dump is clean.We are still not allowed in the old dumpsite that they polluted by dumping illegally back in the 70's and ruined the water supply in that area.

Trust our government agencies all you want,I'd prefer a neutral source to keep them in check.

In the late 60's a lot of tanks, barrels,were hauled out and buried at various sites in Erwin. A local Construction company or companies, were contracted to send their men to dig the holes and carry some of the barrels in the bucket to place in the holes.
That's all anyone knew what to do with it back then...bury it.
I've often wondered how much has leached into the grounds and waters in these areas.
At one point, if memory serves me correctly, barrels were stored in a tractor trailor and the whole truck was buried. Some of the barrels were leaching as they were buried. One such "burial ground" is behind the cemetary that is close to NFS grounds. I believe it has a fence around it. The workers who buried the stuff had to wear the white "zuit" suits.

I'm glad people have jobs from the companies located in our area..however, I feel like there is a very real threat of radiation, past and present.
Hence the large payouts made over the last few years for compensation to the families of people who passed away due to Cancer and other ailments. The threat is very real and people are justified in voicing their concerns.

I would be willing to bet all of you that are trashing NFS have never set foot in there even the one who started this post. I would also be willing to bet that any of you would take a job there tomorrow if it was offered. There are people that have worked there for 40 years and are healthier than most, and cancer free. If people claim to get cancer because they live near NFS yet they smoke and don't take care of thier physical health then it's hard for me to agree with them. I would say the people working in NFS are at a greater health risk than anyone living in the city of ERWIN.
