(GOLDEN, Colo., May 5, 2004) "Scabbling", defined by Mike, site manager, is occuring in a section of building #881. This is a completely enclosed, negative pressure, floor decontamination process. **(It was photographed through a half-dome plastic window)** 1/32nd of an inch of floor is removed at a time. The building was built of mostly steel and concrete designed to withstand the blast of a nuclear explosion. It is 250,000 sqft in size and is getting meticulous attention to bring it to clean standards before it will be demolished. Rocky Flats Enviornmental Technology Site (cq from karen lutz., on site escort and public affairs person, 303-966-4546) is in ongoing progress of decontamination and post production work of all buildings on site. The workers are here to meet standards set in the Rocky Flats Clean Up Agreement. Only when a building has met stringent clean up standards can it then be demolished. (Photo by: STEVEN R.
