Though turned away from Brentwood School where Millennium Consulting Associates was testing Dec. 8, took a closer look at what has been tested so far in Phase One. We also noted what hasn’t been tested apparently due to a truncated testing schedule, which may be made up in Phase Two, and because of interference from professional dog walkers blocking access to the testing site Dec. 7.

The pre-1980 map of the four dumping areas recalled by workers, as well as the 1995 map and 2000 map, show that this area running through the dog park’s south field and beyond the fence is part of area “B” of the known dump. This broad ridge seen below is more likely, therefore, to contain radioactive and chemical waste the closer to the main dumping arroyo to the east between the Barrington Recreation Center and MacArthur Field.
