supposedly there is uranium buried deep under the ground in homemade alloy ( metal ) bins. At the time people around here didn't know what they were handling. It is thought that government agencies purposely used this area because they knew there was a lack in educated people that lived and worked here. There is nothing built on this empty lot which is about the size of two football fields side by side. In a plant that utilizes every space for either storage or production, it's really strange that this flat clean slate is not being used at all. I heard that there are varying amounts of radiation that can be measured and also the trees in this area are strangely dead in spots. These trees have been here when production was in effect. It's a creepy place for some reason. Can't explain why.

So you really don't believe any of this? Try looking up news paper articles from the time or ask the families of the dead workers who buried it up in Ohio. My grandfather worked at the plant during the time (not in that actual building tho.) I remember looking out their back door and seeing it while waiting for him to walk home down the alley

This is complete nonsense. Isn't it funny how theres always someone who was at a place but theres never any actual proof that the event took place. Prove it.

Guyan. And yes there is proof you fool. I work there and it is off limits. Also I have personally been to the site spoken of, nothing is built there. The grass and the trees are just how they're described. Only thing speculated was that there is uranium or plutonium under the ground in bins. That part i know nothing factual about. The plant did deal with radioactive materials back in the day. That is a fact and there are numerous articles in newspapers. The building was tore down after they stopped production of it. The workers did not know what they were dealing with at the time as most people back then knew nothing of plutonium uranium and other materials. I still don't know what is in half of our alloys that could be harmful that they do not tell u about. Read the news a few days ago. Special metals is getting fined for yet another waste issue. Contaminating river. This is not just some old ghost story. Look up the plant in Ohio that the same thing happened at. I believe the breast cancer rate of the women that work there is near 90%. Don't blab about something til u know what you're talking about

Why not ask the living retirees, or those that still work at the facility?

What's this have to do with anything?

You can go ask retirees if you'd like. A quick google search would also give you all the info you need.

INCO, killing workers and their families for over 80 years.

Poisoning their neighbors with heavy metals and radioisotopes for profit.

It's the Amerikan Way.

Suck up to your corporate masters as they poison your children.

I believe tbat he meant to say that the cancer rate for employees is 90% higher than the general population.
But he may have just been telling a "whoper"!

Aaaahhh, another conservative science-denier who slept through physics class.

Did you not even read the articles?

"Huntington, WV had a AEC leased plant, the Huntington Pilot Plant (Reduction Pilot Plant) which operated from 1952-1962 and sat at the Huntington Alloys site in a "cold standby" state.
Since the AEC leased plant was dismantled in 1978-1979 and trucked to a then classified burial ground in Piketon, Ohio (on the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant site), it appears that West Virginia did not have authority to regulate materials at the structure, which undertook uranium processing and recycling of material from the Portsmouth, Paducah, and Oak Ridge Gaseous Diffusion Plants (and possibly others).
In addition to nickel, nickel carbonyl, uranium and plutonium, the HPP and the surroundings on which it sat has been associated with numerous toxic substances regulated by permits."

Air, water and soil contaiminated with Uranium and Plutonium isn't a danger?

Why would we need a Remediation Plan if there was no problem here?

The entire plant is toxic, lazy/inept workers spilled deadly materials in every part of the facility, do you think the records are faked?

Do you think the Congressional hearings are a fantasy?

"JANUARY 10, 1956 “Placed residue container which still contained residue from preceding (#6) reactor under succeeding reactor (#1). When residue from #1 reactor was dropped, it overfilled container and consequently dusted entire building". According to a further explanation, the residue of #6 had been dropped by the preceding shift (C) at “about shift change time” and they “had no opportunity to weigh and identify same.” The container should have been checked by above named employee before placement under the reactor."
