Soldiers’ tombstones are emerging from the muck of a biomedical nuclear and chemical dump on the Department of Veterans Affairs grounds in Brentwood, California. The VA says its long-promised $1 million investigation of the dump is still on yet it hasn’t noticed the gravestones. The dump is far larger than previously known. Adjacent Brentwood School’s athletic fields may have been impacted with heavy metal contamination with football field reportedly built over trench of syringes. School denies all and VA isn’t talking to LA Weekly or EnviroReporter.com.
Los Angeles Councilman Bill Rosendahl leads tough talks with VA to secure $1 million for comprehensive Phase 2 tests of West LA VA’s forgotten biomedical nuclear dump. The controversial and incomplete Phase I test results showed heightened radiation under two arroyos skirting Barrington Dog Park and Brentwood School football field.
