I went as a tourist to Trinity site , New Mexico ... it was spooky , in more than one way ; but- especially from a health standpoint .

Breathing that low-level dust will kill a percentage of workers, I would guess .

I hope they don't put it ion some stupid place ... like above and close to a major river . I guess it's low level,though ... so - why worry ?
Thanks , S&F.

It's going to the Nevada National Security Site, previously the Nevada Test Site. It seems like they are consolidating the low level wastes.

Low-level radioactive waste is a term used in communication. It may or may not be true.

The only way to know if it truly is low-level is to measure it.
