Edgerton Germeshausen & Grier, Inc.

Boston, Massachusetts



TIME PERIOD:
1950-1953


FACILITY DESCRIPTION: DOE Office of Health, Safety and Security Website:

EG&G was under contract to the AEC during the period from 1950-1953 for "research and development and manufacturing incident to the installation of scientific test instrumentation at AEC test sites; design, manufacture, test, maintenance of operations systems, weapons systems; and participation in weapons test evaluation." It is unclear from the documentation whether any radioactive materials were handled at the Boston location.


DISCUSSION:

It is evident that radioactive materials were handled at this site. The documentation reviewed does not confirm or substantiate that weapons-related radioactive materials were handled or involved at any time during 1950-1953.
 

INFORMATIONAL SOURCES:

Sources of information reviewed during this evaluation included:

--DOE Office of Health, Safety and Security Website

--Memorandum on Precautions to be Observed in the Handling of M-26 GAPS, October 22, 1948

 

EVALUATION FINDINGS:

Documentation reviewed indicates that there is little potential for significant residual contamination outside of the period in which weapons-related production occurred.
