This guy isn't even a U.S. citizen. The Canadian goivernment has been trying to extradite him for years, but has not been able to. Perhaps now they will convict him, make him serve his U.S. jail time as well as pay all his U.S. fines, then deport him to Canada to serve the time and pay the fines owed. This man has no respect for the enviroment!He deserves everything he gets!

Craig has always been a real piece of work. You would have thought his earlier run in would have shaken him a little, but guys like that never consider they are in the wrong and that they are above the law, anyway. Good riddance!

This man's negligence has put other people at risk. That is the essence of this case. He acted irresponsibly in Canada and he acted irresponsibly here, thankfully he only cost us money this time and hopefully he won't be in a position to earn a third strike after our attorney general convicts him of the current charges. The cleanup of these sites and disposal of the waste has cost us as US taxpayers millions of dollars. That is money that Mr. Dallmeyer chose not to spend to properly process and store the surplus aircraft parts which he owned, this company has made a lot of money selling aircraft parts over the years and rather than using some of that "profit" to properly maintain the company it has found it's way into Mr. Dallmeyer's pocket.

The radium gauges were all Pentagon surplus. The DEP and EPA don't want the public to know where all this stuff came from. They are punishing Dallmayer for speaking up.

The aircraft gauges are marked with luminescent paint containing radium-226, a naturally-occurring radionuclide. Natural decay of radium-226 causes radio-emissions of alpha particles, beta particles, and gamma radiation and the formation of radon-222, all of which are health hazards. Site investigations showed that some of the luminescent paint was beginning to deteriorate into a powder. This meant that the radium-226 could leak out of the aircraft gauges into the environment and could create an inhalation risk to anyone who handled them. Radium-226 can enter the body by ingestion or inhalation. Exposure to radium-226 at elevated levels can cause anemia, cataracts, fractured teeth, cancer, and death. Once ingested, most radium-226 exits the body in urine and feces over a period of several months. Approximately 20 percent of the radium-226 intake amount enters the bloodstream and is carried to all parts of the body where a portion will come to reside in bone tissue and be able to cause long-term damage. Dust particles containing radium-226 can be inhaled into and lodge in the lungs, where alpha-particle radiation can cause great damage to sensitive lung tissue and cause lung cancer.
Ionizing radiation from radium-226 poses a health risk since it affects humans on a cellular level. Such radiation deposits energy in body tissue which can cause cell damage or cell death. In some cases, there may be no effect on a cell; in others, the cell may survive but become abnormal, either temporarily or permanently. Abnormal cells may become malignant. In addition, harmful genetic mutations can be passed on to future generations. In large doses, radiation can cause extensive cellular damage and result in death. Smaller doses may not cause death, but the surviving person or organ may have cellular damage, leading to an increased risk of cancer. The overall extent of damage depends upon the total amount of energy absorbed, the time period and dosage rate of exposure, and the particular organ(s) exposed.

Dallmeyer didn't speak up, he knowingly stored these instruments in unsecured dilapidated buildings for nearly 20 years before he was forced to start addressing the issue by the Department of Environmental Protection and then he drug his feet until the EPA was forced to step in and place 24 hour guards at the sites until they could clean up. These warehouses have been a fire hazard for years left wide open with windows broken out and missing doors for any kid or vagrant to wander into and had they burnt our emergency responders wouldn't have had any idea that they and the community were being exposed to significant levels of radiation and other hazardous compounds because they were not properly stored, registered and marked as hazardous by their owner Mr. Dallmeyer.

UNITED STATES NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION
Original estimates were for approximately 70,000 affected parts mixed throughout an estimated millions of other aircraft parts, but the number affected appears to be a significant underestimation. The parts are stored in eight warehouses at seven different location scattered about western Lancaster County. Many of the warehouses have significant structural concerns. Once the Department became aware of the company possessing all of this material, the process was immediately started to get them licensed for decommissioning. The license was issued in August of 2007. The licensee committed to an aggressive but believed to be reasonable timeline to complete the cleanup. The Department performed an initial inspection in October 2007 and multiple regulatory violations were found. It was also found that the licensee had completed almost no work towards the decommissioning including not making any shipments of radioactive waste. Because of the violations and the discovery of hazardous and flammable material being stored in some of the warehouses with the radium parts, The Department requested the assistance of the EPA's Emergency Removal Group. EPA has nearly completed the removal phase in two of the warehouses, and is preparing to move on to a third. They have also issued an order to the Licensee to perform a complete decommissioning of two warehouses that are on the same property.

They may be posted now but they were not when Dallmeyer was associated with the company I wish the YDR would take the time to interview some of the neighbors at these sites and ask them what the condition of the buildings were before the state stepped in, I'm sure someone has photos. You can view some of the interior of the sites at the epa website, they also have available some of the reports and other documentation generated during the evaluation and cleanup of the sites
