Every now and then, the flora and fauna at the Hartford nuclear facilities comes in contact with radioactive material. When that happens, there is a team in charge of tracking them down.
A pile of radioactive rabbit dung means that there is a radioactive rabbit in the area. It is the teams’ job to locate and capture that bunny.
But, their work is not just limited to animals. On occasion, even the vegetation comes in contact with the material. The team has to make sure that no vegetation leaves the area. After all, a radioactive tumble weed could contaminate an entire neighborhood.
The work is not without its’ challenges but it is very much needed.
