While it has been known for some time that the Navy’s contractor at Hunters Point had falsified radiation measurements there, a new report reveals that the cleanup levels themselves were also erroneous.

Therefore both the measurements and the standards against which they were checked were wrong, in ways that seriously undercut public safety.
