In their West Lake Update, dated June 30, 2014, the EPA had the following to say regarding their completed screening of the BMAC complex:
"EPA's surface gamma radiation screening of the Bridgeton Municipal Athletic Complex (BMAC) in Bridgeton, Mo., suggests the facility remains suitable for use."
The EPA arrived at this conclusion after having screened the entirety of BMAC's 70 acres with sensitive, sodium iodide sensors, linked to a GPS system to ensure complete and accurate coverage of the facility. In all, the scientists and their equipment traveled 45 miles of transecting lines at BMAC and collected more than 58,000 data points, including those areas tested by a local resident in April. In addition, the EPA collected over 100 soil samples, which are currently undergoing laboratory analysis. Those results should be in by the end of July.
We at BAA are pleased to receive this confirmation and whole-heartedly agree with the EPA's Update headline: Play Ball At BMAC ! BAA's Spring/Summer session is now in its final phase, in preparation for our fall programs. Please read the articles below for more information regarding those offerings.
