The Navy responded, saying Monday it has gone through the building records and can find no reason for those two radioactive substances to be there, but it is in the process of cleaning it up. It also cleaning up nuclear radium contamination outside a nearby building. The Navy said that contamination came from radium paint, which was historically used to make glow in the dark instruments for airplanes at the base.
