Records indicate shipments of depleted uranium between Rocky Flats and M&C during the period from 1955-1958.
During the period of residual contamination, as designated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and as noted in the dates above, employees of subsequent owners and operators of this facility are also covered under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act.
