In 1999 building land was sold off around Dawson Forest. My friends bought one acre land and build their home directly at the border of DF. They
wanted to get away from the city to live a natural lifestyle. They decided not to get connected to the city water supply, instead they had their own
well. It is very beautiful out in Dawson Forest and it is a great place for horseback riding. We all moved in 2000 to the new house on a Friday. The
next morning on a Saturday, starting at 7am a helicopter flew in and out of DF on a 30 minutes interval. Later we found out that DF had a N.reactor in
After one week living in the new home I started to have diarrhea, stomach cramps, and fevers which off and on lasted the entire 8 month that I lived
in that place. I knew that our water came from the well on the property. I had very big concerns that it might be poisoned with radioactive particles.
Living there I became fascinated with DF past, and went many times in DF, walking or by car. The nature is extremely beautiful there. Each time I
entered DF, a conversation that I had with my father 10 years earlier popped back into my head. He went to Chernobyl three times. The place that had
the horrific nuclear accident in 1986. He told me that all the plants grow bigger and somewhat stronger due to the radiation exposure, and that it is
so obvious and somewhat amazing. Each time that I entered DF I thought too that the nature is somehow extremely beautiful. Sevearal days in 2001 DF
was closed to the public. Army vehicles pretty much surrounded all the entrances to the forest. My friend and I wanted to enter with the car, but
where stopped, and asked for the drivers license, and had to turn back.
Finally, I was too sick and decided to move away from DF. I remained sick for several years that followed until 2004 when I had surgery removing heavy
scar tissue that surrounded my stomach. In 2006 I had a tumor removed. I can not proof that my problems were a result from ingesting radioactive
poisoned water, but I strongly belief it contributed to my problems. I am still very obsessed about collecting info’s about DF. I spent endless
hours searching the Internet, but not much info’s are out there. I wonder, is there anyone else who had similar health problems living in DF area?
