For your consideration…

barrel

Just want to make sure everyone is on the same page regarding the “mystery barrels”.  The Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa out of Bayfield, WI have secured over $1 million from the Department of Defense to remove about 70 of the barrels for testing.  PDF here of the 2008 MN DOH “Health Consultation” regarding the barrels.  Link here to Nukewatch’s compendium on barrel research including a full collection of local news releases on the subject.

Please share this info with friends and neighbors.

it'll be interesting to see what is actually in them.

Scary is more like it.

well, we don't know, and that is the whole point of finding out. The absolute best thing is for these barrels to be relatively innocuous, and that is what I am hoping for, even if that means a lot of people where wrong about them. OTOH they could be filled will all sorts of nasty stuff, which will be hard finding $ to clean them up.

or worst case: they bring them up to the surface, they break apart, and they're full of alien spores from Area 51.

Some of these barrels were already brought up and opened about 15 years ago.  There is nothing but bits and pieces of old hand grenades encased in concrete.  At this point, it would be better to not disturb them and leave them sit in the muck at the bottom of Lake Superior.

Why would they go to all the trouble of dumping " old hand grenades" in the lake when they could have  just melted them down? And why, if they're just hand grenades,would it be "better to not disturb them"? This is from Nukewatch's website:

For four years, between 1959 and 1962, barrels containing benzene, PCBs, lead, cadmium, barium, hexavalent chromium and most likely radioactive materials were rolled off barges into the lake at spots all along the north shore. One of the seven acknowledged dump sites (there are more) is within a mile of Duluth-Superior drinking water intake -- just northeast of Brighton Beach.

I'm wondering if Dan E. drinks (washes his clothes, cooks with, etc.)      Duluth tap water.  All these government officials who keep telling us, "Move along, nothing to see here", DON'T LIVE HERE!  If you handed them a glass of tap water do you think they would drink it?

IMHO this conspiracy theory is a bunch of hogwash. I'd like a credit on my taxes that are going to pay for this, thank you very much.

benlskinner- What do base your humble opinion on? Uttering the magic words " conspiracy theory" won't make the problem go away. And re: money for the clean-up, Honeywell should have to pay for it's share of the mess it created.
