Very few Americans who don’t live near it have ever heard of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP), a federal nuclear waste repository approximately 26 miles east of Carlsbad, New Mexico, but some experts are saying that something very serious happened there recently — something that could affect tens of millions of Americans. However, you’re not likely to read much about it in the institutional media.

According to the Carlsbad Current-Argus, a local newspaper, “traces of radiation” were found in February northwest of the WIPP following tests by the Carlsbad Environmental Monitoring and Research Center, a division of the College of Engineering at New Mexico State University. The tests showed “evidence of trace amounts of americium and plutonium on an air filter” at a nearby sampling station off the WIPP access road.

At the time of the incident Russell Hardy, the director for the Carlsbad Environmental Monitoring and Research Center, said in a press release:

“The levels detected during this time period are higher than the normal background levels of radioactivity from transuranic elements commonly found at this sampling station, thus their presence during this specific time frame appears to indicate a small release of radioactive particles from the WIPP underground exhaust shaft in the brief moments following when the radiation event occurred and when the WIPP ventilation system shifted to the filtration mode.”

Nothing to worry about
