Michael Sebourn, (in charge of decontaminating aircraft after 3/11) Senior chief mechanic for the helicopter squadron based at Atsugi: The army pulled out a 60,000 CCPM radiator out of one of their helicopters. It was absolutely crazy, crazy circumstance. The nuclear guys just kind of went nuts and deep sunk this thing into a barrel of water and other chemicals and put a huge barrier around it, you know ‘police line do not cross’.
Radiation actually feeds itself, and you get radiation that high it becomes its own source of power and energy. It won’t go away, storing in containers is not going to do anything. It will actually feed, it will grow, and so every day readings around the area have to be taken — at this point 5 feet from that barrel we’re reading 750 CCPM, you just have to continue to monitor that.
