Rocky Flats - historical public exposure studies

The following studies were conducted between 1990 and 1999. The studies focused on estimating increased cancer risk to residents living or working in surrounding communities during the plant’s operation from 1952 to 1989. The studies addressed only past releases that were carried off-site and led to exposure of the public and did not include possible releases after production ceased in 1989.
