Has anyone heard about the radioactive spill at WCS this week? The building MWTS had a spill where the people were evacuated and the building air was isolated so the spill didn't vent to the atmosphere. To recover from the spill, people were in double radioactive suits with resperators. The site was closed for the entire day. At the end of the day, the management said it was nothing and we did an overkill just in case. Was there any radioactive material that was vented to the atmosphere? Was the people of Eunice notified as a matter of courtesey? The management said there was less than 1% of an accumulated dose. If that was the case, why were there several people dressed as if it was a site event? The shutdown cost about $100,000 dollars in lost production, yet the management said it was just an over reaction to something that was a non event. What has the people of Eunice heard about this?
