The Kansas City Plant, where non-nuclear components for nuclear bombs are made, is scaling back production and moving all the assembly from Bannister and Troost to a site near the former Richards-Gebaur Air Force Base. Members of an organization called PeaceWorks KC are concerned that workers vacating the old site will leave behind beryllium dust, PCBs, acidic and alkaline liquids, solvents, oils, coolants, and low-level radioactive waste.Distressing?
