Brookhaven National Labatory (BLN) is in cahoots with LIPA.
BNL's SERs provide frightening accounts of fish and wildlife contamination since the 1940's, but they want $12.6k for 430 boxes per their 8/2/11 letter; pp. 1-2 in the attachment. They did send excerpts from 7 SERs for 1990 to 1996 that are also in the attachment. SERs for 1997 to 2010 are online @ www.bnl.gov/ewms/ser/default.asp. I believe your Committee could get all 430 boxes for free; especially if Legs. Romaine & Horsley & Joe request them.

Thank you Governor Cuomo for blocking mindless DEC studies; given the DEC has wasted millions in taxpayer dollars secretly testing radioactive marine life and deer that flee the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), yet not one dollar was used to educate or warn hunters and an unsuspecting public not to eat wildlife or farm produce within BNL's fallout zone.
In fact, on 9 January 2002 a dazed BNL deer fled for its life; only to be killed by a vehicle. The DEC found it contained a huge level of Cesium-137 (Cs-137) 21,000 pCi/kg =9,534 pCi per pound. That’s about 1.6 times the legal limit of 500 becquerels per kilogram (13,500 pCi/kg or 6,129 pCi per pound). [1]

According to BNL's Site Environmental Reports (SERs) for 1997 to 2010 @ www.bnl.gov/ewms/ser/default.asp, soil contaminated with Cs-137 was used for landscaping, thereby creating radioactive vegetation eaten by deer and other wildlife. Yet the DEC failed to warn us against eating LI animals or farm produce contaminated by decades of Cs-137 fallout from BNL

No state or federal official issued evacuation orders, yet U.S. officials advised Americans to evacuate 12 to 19 miles from Fukushima --and the whole World was informed last month that meat from 11 cows shipped to Tokyo from Fukushima prefecture was found to have 3 to 6 times the legal limit of 500 becquerels per kilogram [13,500 pCi/kg or 6,129 pCi per pound] of radioactive cesium. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caesium-137#cite_note-4)

But the DEC failed to warn LI hunters not to eat deer containing up to 778 becquerels per kilogram. Why?

Are you saying DEC tested fish and animals had dangerous levels of radioactivity and they are not warning the public of potential dander?
