New Year Yom Kippur Brandeis-Bardin – Joe Utsler 2007


DTSC BRANDEIS-BARDIN “WHITE PAPER” CONCLUSIONS

46. Page 45/59: “Chemicals investigated within the active Brandeis Bardin Campus areas are within the range of local background.”

[ER NOTE: FALSE – See 4D and 6B.]

47. Page 45/59: “Levels of radionuclides at the Brandeis Bardin property are within the range of local background.”

[ER NOTE: FALSE – See 3A, 3B, 3C, 3D & 3E.]

48. Page 45/59: “Any data demonstrating a threat to human health at Brandeis Bardin or any other areas from SSFL would result in DTSC taking immediate actions to stop that threat.”

[ER NOTE: FALSE –
Even though the AOC between DTSC and DOE includes responsibility for Brandeis-Bardin cleanup of radiation and chemicals, DTSC has jettisoned even entertaining adherence to that part of the deal. Remediating Area IV’s radiation and chemicals to background levels as part of a restoration to a safe natural environment, has been the agreement since 2010 yet, as this EnviroReporter.com analysis shows, Brandeis-Bardin doesn’t get the BTV level of cleanup. What it does get is a DTSC “white paper” riddled with mistakes, falsehoods and sleights of hand built on seven pillars of prevarication dissected and analyzed in this document.]

49. Page 56/59: “Figure 3 • Strontium-90 (pCilg) Soil Analytical Data Compared to the SSFL Soil – Residential (without produce consumption) Risk-Based Screening Level (RBSL)”

EnviroReporter.com wrote of this completely misleading map in Brandeis-Bardin’s Toxic Denial:

“At an April 12, 2016 meeting, DTSC produced a presentation [pp. 28-30 PDF pages; 6.4 MB] stating that Brandeis-Bardin is safe. The presentation included maps showing both Sr-90 and Cesium-137 (Cs-137) migrating offsite into Brandeis, but declared the contamination posed no threat according to what it claimed was a residential Risk-Based Screening Level (RBSL.)

“Problem was that the standard of 3.85 picocuries per gram (pCi/g) for Sr-90 that it used, apparently provided to DTSC by Boeing, was thousands of times less protective than the current EPA Residential Preliminary Remediation Goal of 0.00121 pCi/g. DTSC falsely declared almost of all the Strontium-90 in Area IV to be to be less than a residential risk-based standard, when in fact they are almost all above it. DTSC also should not have applied any risk-based standards to Area IV, since it is under the Administrative Order on Consent (AOC) to be cleaned up to background.”
