History project points to fuller investigation

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

POJOAQUE – The history of toxic releases at Los Alamos has not come out whole. Rather, it has been excavated piecemeal, room-by-room, box-by-box, paper-by-paper and clue-by-clue.

Over the last 10 years that the Los Alamos Historic Document and Retrieval Assessment (LAHDRA) project has been pulling pieces of facts from oblivion, the project team has slowly illuminated one of the dark corners of recent times.

The work has accomplished a great deal toward an initial screening estimate of risk factors, but there may be a lot more work to do, if the final report recommends that a full dose reconstruction should be called for at Los Alamos.

Each year the project brings to the community news that has not always been good, but represents a fuller accounting that can be used to reconcile and substantiate the past.

One of the key metrics, project director Tom Widner said Wednesday during an annual meeting at the Cities of Gold convention center, was the number of document summaries, now 8,170, representing the most relevant nuggets from the quest.
