It's the gift that keeps on giving...extra body parts. Starting this week Luckey FUSRAP (Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program) Site will begin the process of shipping radioactively contaminated soil from their site in Ohio, to another site in Michigan for proper disposal. Why Michigan? Mostly and mainly because Belleville, MI is home to the U.S. Ecology, Wayne Disposal Facility and I guess we got stuck with the tab.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dropped the news last week as Local 4 Detroit reported and they are taking the handling of this soil very seriously stating:

The safety of the workers and the community, as well as the protection of the environment, continues to be our highest priority for the project.

After the material is loaded up safely, it'll be transported in flexible bulk packages inside hard-sided, roll-off containers that will be sealed and will have a tarp over them, for safe measure. Each container will have 15 tons of soil in them. All the drivers will be properly trained to make sure the shipping process of this project goes without a hitch. Let's hope it does. Unless this stuff is gonna give me super powers, I'm not interested in being contaminated.
