Talk:Brookhaven National Laboratory
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
The word "release" seemed to suggest deliberate intent, when the fact is that the leakage was unknown until detected in monitoring wells. I changed the word to "leakage", which is more accurate and less misleading.
The word "environment" was far too broad, and seemed to suggest that the tritium either went into the atmosphere or actually escaped the laboratory grounds and affected drinking water; it did neither. I therefore substituted the more-precise, more-accurate, and less-confusing term "groundwater".

I also updated the tense ("have angered" to "angered"), since the HFBR was closed nearly a decade ago, and added a note that management changes resulted. (Actually, the site contractor, AUI, had its contract cancelled -- in a move many view as largely political! But I really don't think that can of worms needs re-opening.)
