Interesting - I never knew this was here.  Anyone know if the "cleanup" ever completed?

Fascinating.  I never knew of any of that, or of Karen Silkwood.

Edit - (not a native Okie, came here in 2004)

This was a big deal back in the 70's,never did hear if cleanup was completed.About this time PSO was trying
to build the  Black Fox nuclear power plant near Inola,but protesters and the Three Mile Island incident got that shut down.

Guess I’m getting old. Hwy 74 just south of Canadian River and Cresent on east side of road. You can see some  buildings from highway, I don’t go through there often but appears there is still activity there as I’ve seen different vehicles in there.

Cimarron Environmental Response Trust is still doing testing and maybe cleanup still.

Yes, Karen Silkwood had radiation poisoning, it makes you think about which body cavity she used when she smuggled the radioactive materials out of the plant. The proper container to safely carry those materials was just too big to fit internally.

Didn't Kerr-McGee end up settling with her family? Been too long ago.
