Los Alamos Says Survey Shows Normal Radiation

Mar 20, 2013

Officials at Los Alamos National Laboratory say two recent aerial flyovers show normal radiation levels around the city and county.

Los Alamos Field office acting manager Juan Griego says the surveys conducted August 2011 and June 2012 in the vicinity of the northern New Mexico nuclear facility found that radioisotopes and their associated exposure rates are consistent with those expected from normal background radiation.

The 2011 survey focused on the White Rock community and Los Alamos National Laboratory.

The 2012 survey concentrated on the Los Alamos town site.
