    Hillside 138 still has residual plutonim in dust which can become airborn on windy days. The 2010 MEI of 0.33 millirem is well below the 10 millirem limit.
  • 2011 MEI2011 MEI Source: MDA B Cleanup
    In 2011, due to small amounts of plutonium in dust, an MEI of 3.5 millirem was measured across the street from the northern border of MDA B. This is well below the 10 millirem limit.
