Army says no risks from radioactive material found at APG's Edgewood
BY ALLAN VOUGHT Baltimore Sun February 21, 2013The Army will hold a public information meeting in Edgewood next week to go over its findings in connection with a former salvage site on Aberdeen Proving Ground, where a small amount of radioactive material was found beginning in 2009.
The material - 17 small radioluminescent devices most likely used by the Navy to illuminate the outline of ships' decks or repair docks at night - was found in an area known as G Street Salvage Yard on the Edgewood Area of APG, according to a fact sheet the Army released last week.
In the fact sheet, the Army said it has concluded that the radioactive material in the devices has not adversely affected the environment and no remedial action is required at the site or in surrounding soil or groundwater.
