[2015 – While EnviroReporter.com‘s reporting on the Brentwood biomedical nuclear dump partially under Barrington Dog Park stopped then-President George W. Bush’s $4 billion plan to privatize and develop VA land, nothing has been remediated.]
The unidentified contractors move their boring machine further south along the arroyo to a spot outside of VA diagrams of where dumping of radioactive material and chemical debris occurred. Men bypass center mound associated with Brentwood School athletic fields excavation that the VA had previously said contained biomedical waste.
The rain the night before made the dump muddy and the tombstones gleam white. At first, we couldn't find the work crew other than one man arranging barrels of dirt that had bolted on lids and "non-hazardous" stickers on them. The crew could then be heard boring at the farthest southern reaches of the fenced off dump, the furthest the men had cored away from the known area where radioactive and chemical contamination was dumped.
