- FAQ: Sediment Collapse into Detroit River from Detroit Bulk Storage Site
Radiological testing conducted Friday, December 6, at the site of a sediment collapse into the Detroit River shows radiation levels are below background levels typically found in Michigan, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) announced.
The site, commonly referred to as the Revere Copper & Brass site or Detroit Bulk Storage site, was previously contaminated by uranium processing. It was remediated in the 1980s and 1990s. Post-remediation testing showed no radiological contamination beyond background levels. The testing conducted on December 6 affirms that there is no increased radiological risk to the public or the environment from the sediment.
