Colorado Dept. of Health Expert Says “Persistent Myths” Cause Undue Dread About Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge

The information is readily available to the public but conveying it is challenging “given the longstanding and polarizing opinions that often result in misleading and biased information concerning Rocky Flats.”
