"The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today reported new environmental monit=
oring data from samples collected at numerous locations on and around the W=
aste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP). Results indicate slightly elevated level=
s of airborne radioactive concentrations, which are consistent with the was=
te disposed of at WIPP. The samples taken demonstrate these concentrations =
remain well below a level of public or environmental hazard."
But the "slightly elevated levels of airborne radioactive concentrations, w=
hich are consistent with the waste disposed of at WIPP" does tarnish the co=
ncept of "WASTE ISOLATION Pilot Plant."
