Uranium? Fluorides? Arsenic?

Via Itchy at RochesterTurning, the world’s largest uranium producer, Cameco, reports having accidentally leaked uranium, fluorides and arsenic into Lake Ontario.  Oops.

Yet another wonderful byproduct of the Manhattan Project:

The plant at Port Hope, Ontario, across the lake from Rochester and down the shore from Toronto, first refined uranium for the Manhattan Project during World War II. It has been temporarily closed since July to remove contaminated soil.
