What are the levels are they reporting.  Maybe I missed them.  The former 
Environmental Measurements Laboratory (EML), (formally the Health and Safety 
Laboratory - HASL )  had reported a background measurement of Plutonium in 
the environment due to the above ground testings held by the USA and former 
USSR.  I believe it was in the femto (X E-15) curie range.

For your amusement or horror, I really have no idea what to think about
