DOWN-WIND-ER: A person living downwind of a nuclear test site, weapons plant or reactor, where the risk from fallout or radiation leaks is greatest.
The Rocky Flats Plant operated from 1952 until 1989 as part of the United States’ nationwide nuclear weapons complex. The Rocky Flats facility manufactured trigger mechanisms for nuclear weapons from various radioactive and hazardous materials. Manufacturing activities, accidental industrial fires and spills, support activities, and waste management practices contaminated soil, sediment, groundwater and surface water with hazardous chemicals and radioactive constituents.
