LIVING WITH URANIUM - POCATELLO AREA, IDAHO

We here in the Gray Blackened Valley of Pocatello , Idaho do hereby, strongly suggest you take precautions when visiting the Gate City. There are many of us in this region of Idaho that do have an ethic and moral position regarding safety. Please refer to "Living With Uranium", Pocatello And Chubnobyl, ID and other publishing sites such as the Pocatello State Journal - US and affiliates to bring the Great Pocatello Uranium Clean-up to fruition.

Be advised that unsuspecting people and their families are often lured into communities by developers, Realtors, and Chamber of Commerce, and City Governments without telling. Remember, that it is their goal to attract and apply "Do Not Tell' even when they are in the know. Until this community of Pocatello reaches the actual Clean-up of it's own Ground Zero Uranium Materials source areas and Zones containing thousand and thousands of tons of uranium materials. Thank you, PINCOCc - Pocatello Independent Uranium Contamination Oversight Clean-up committee and the PSJ-US.

Would this include the Idaho Falls area too?
Is Rigby full of Radon?

I have no idea, but I hope not. I was pretty shocked to run across this disturbing bit of info the same day I posted that.

Why is this area full of uranium? What's the history there in Pocatello?
I heard on this forum one of the prospective buyers for a nice big house in Rigby backed out after the inspection because the Radon levels were twice the acceptable levels.

Yikes! I did a search for Uranium in Pocatello Idaho, and that is where I found a link to this very short thread. So I replied to it so that it would get bumped up. I wanted to see what others might say about it.
Something about uranium being in the soil around the phosphate processing plants, or something. Here are the search results. You can do one on the places you are interested in. Good luck.

Mmmmm.. there is no such legal entity registered in Idaho as 'Pocatello State Journal'. This looks like an attempt to appear like an official journal.... pretending to be something like the Idaho State Journal, which is in Pocatello. No references or links to anything. Beware.

Radon is common all over the west. The only way anyone knows if it's in their basement is to test for it.

Radon is a heavy gas, so it moves around in the earth constantly and forms pockets. Any disturbance of the earth is enough to disrupt a pocket; the gas then drifts until it forms another pocket somewhere else.

Google "Idaho Lorax". I'm sure this article was authored by him. That youtube video linked above is definitely him. He's a local character around Pocatello that's been on about this stuff for years.

Yes, Idaho has Radon-222, which is a decay product of trace amounts of Uranium in the ground, but this is true, as Banjomike points out, across the western US. In fact, it's anywhere that there's granite and shale. There's nothing special or more dangerous about Pocatello in this regard.
