November Data Search and Capture Efforts
  • Environmental Measurements Laboratory (EML)
    New York, NY


    NIOSH and ORAU personnel visited the Environmental Measurements Laboratory (EML) in New York City. More than 40 boxes of records and data were reviewed and found to be necessary for AWE dose reconstruction. Currently, EML is becoming part of the Office of Homeland Security. Therefore, all of the records reviewed were transferred to the DOE Office of Worker Advocacy in Washington DC. OCAS and ORAU personnel coordinated with DOE to obtain copies of the records once the transfer was complete.

Fernald submitted the results of their search in November 2002.The search resulted in the identification of over 1,000 records.
