Truth-challenged Entergy Vt Yankee employees...maybe they've been drinking too much tritiated water. The radioactive tritium plume was at 25 - 30 feet deep, now they've found it in the groundwater at 60 feet--closer to the deep aquifer that supplies not just the VT Yankee contaminated drinking water well, but all the wells in Vernon, including the Vernon Elementary School well, which has in the past recorded tritium levels above background. This IS a problem, Mr. Smith, and no, plastic and duct tape won't save you from gamma radiation.
