Gaps remain as document retrieval project winds down

POJOAQUE  – The project was not yet over before the push began to extend it.

Project leaders prepared this week to put the finishing touches on a decade-long search for health-related historical records at Los Alamos National Laboratory, naming a panel of experts to participate in a final review of a draft report.

But immediately, the composition of the panel was criticized and gaps were found, some of them catalogued by the report itself.

“What we have done is a long way from a detailed dose reconstruction,” said Project Director Tom Widener of ChemRisk, Inc., “but we were hoping to direct resources and attention to those things that warrant a closer look.”

The draft report expresses confidence that “enough information exists to reconstruct public exposures from the most significant of LANL’s releases, to a degree of certainty to allow health professionals to judge if significant elevations of health effects should be expected or measurable.”
