Environmental surveys have been conducted for the Utah State Division of Health's Occupational and Radiological Health Section at the former Vitro Corporation uranium mill and in the Salt Lake City, Utah, area. The surveys included measurement of external gamma radiation and airborne radioactivity. The results of the surveys indicated that: the external gamma radiation levels on the tailings area exceed recommended exposure limits. Ambient levels of radon over the pile and in structures built immediately adjacent to the tailings pile are above the currently recommended concentration. Tailings material has been removed from the Vitro site by persons and used around dwellings and businesses; and tailings material has become windborne and deposited against dwellings and structures in the vicinity.
