EMSI: #6) Based on the results of the GCPT gamma logs … will be used to evaluate whether the
radionuclide occurrences are associated with Leached Barium Sulfate Residue (LBSR).
CAG Question 4: The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) explicitly details how the radioactive
wastes dumped at the West Lake Landfill in 1973 consisted of more radioactive wastes than
“Leached Barium Sulfate Residue” in its 1974 decommission report on Latty Avenue.
EPA Response: The analytical testing being performed at the West Lake Landfill site will detect
radionuclides concentrations regardless of the CAG’s concern for its origin.

Chuck,
We received a question from the CAG regarding the ongoing GCPT Phase 1D effort. Can you
help me answer this one? Thanks,
EMSI: #7) Details 12 radioactive isotopes to be tested.
CAG: We recommend additional testing for Radium-223 and Thorium-227. If the EPA cannot
amend the Phase 1 Investigation Work Plan to include sampling for the above mentioned
radioisotopes, the CAG recommends that EPA Region 7 conduct tests for the listed isotopes in
its split samples.
