Here's a link to a Colorado Dept of Public Health study done in 1996:
http://www.cdphe.state.co.us/rf/soilsedstudy.htm
This link was on the website which I listed in my first post.
Also, there's a good article on page 5 of the pdf located on the following website which I created for the anti-beltway group (CINQ) when it was fighting possible compromise by the City of Golden: http://www.homeingolden.com. Page down to page 5 after the PDF opens on your screen.
Full disclosure: I'm on the board of that anti-beltway group and remain a vigilant and outspoken opponent (unlike my fellow Realtors) of the toll road and beltway proposals.

Thanks - will check this out more this afternoon. I did try a few links on that site but none opened. Probably something going on with my internet today.

Just read the article Jim linked to below, it doesn't mention plutonium in the soil at Five Parks. Do you have an article that does?

I used to work at a nuclear power plant, so I wouldn't take this subject lightly, and I know that it's not common to disclose that a neighborhood is built on a superfund site, but I haven't read anything that siad Five Parks was built on one.

If you have more info, I'd be very intersted in seeing it, because I believe people should know the whole truth, even though most would buy a home in a 'cool' neighborhood anyway.

The group opposing the construction of the toll road across Indiana Street from the Village at Five Parks makes a compelling argument (with documentation) that there is plutonium in the soil which would be disturbed by construction of the toll road, and I've wondered whether the construction of Five Parks didn't also disturb some plutonium. See the group's website at http://www.GotheBetterWay.org for details. PS: Very cute - the abbreviation for Plutonium is Pu... the screen name taken by the anonymous questioner...
