Assessment and Remediation of Americium-241 Contamination
Assessment and remediation of americium-241 contamination at the former D&G Operating Co. Inc., Evans Well No. 1, Chambers County, Texas, was funded in part with qualified outer continental shelf oil and gas revenues by the Coastal Impact Assistance Program, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Department of the Interior.
The purpose of this project was to abate the potential radiation threat posed to the State's coastal environment and its citizens from a ruptured radioactive logging source by excavating and removing contaminated material from the site and restoring the site to unrestricted use.
