April 14, 1998

Issued to Kaiser-Hill Company, LLC related to three Radiological Events at the Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site,  (EA 98-03)

On April 14, 1998, the U.S. Department of Energy issued a Consent Order (EA 98-03) to Kaiser-Hill Company, LLC for three events that occurred at the Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site between January 1996 and January 1998. These events involved (1) an unplanned radioactive material uptake by two workers
during a CERCLA Tank Remediation Project; (2) seventeen workers receiving small radiation exposures due to inadequate assessment of area dosimetry data for offices adjacent to rooms containing radioactive material and; (3) a sealed source custodian receiving unnecessary exposure while performing a radioactive source inventory and leak test.  The contractor agreed to the Consent Order.
