Rocky Flats Coalition of Local Governments

Residual Contamination

From 2004-2005 a series of independent reviews were conducted by outside organizations and communities to look at various aspects of the Rocky Flats cleanup.  One of the organizations was the predecessor organization to the Stewardship Council -- the Rocky Flats Coalition of Local Governments (RFCLOG).  The RFCLOG Board of Directors directed their staff in 2005 to begin an independent review of remaining contamination in soil after site closure.  The contamination consists of radionuclides, volatile and semi-volatile organic chemicals, metals, and other species.  The following areas of the site were reviewed for remaining soil contamination and in addition a short explanation of statistical confidence in soil sampling was prepared for the general public.

Note:  Stewardship Council staff will update the independent review reports if new information becomes available.
