Rocky Flats: Dow Chemical And Rockwell International Billed $925M For Contamination At Nuclear Site via Recorder Journal

DENVER — Two companies that were contractors at the now-defunct Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant have been ordered to pay $925 million to residents who claimed contamination blown from the facility endangered people’s health and devalued their property.
Dow Chemical Co. on Tuesday denied wrongdoing and said it will appeal. The other contractor, Rockwell International Corp., has in part been purchased by Boeing Co., which said it had no liability for the site.
The lawsuit, filed by a group of homeowners, affects up to 13,000 people who owned land near the ex- plant when it shut down in 1989 because of safety violations. The lawsuit claimed the companies intentionally mishandled radioactive waste and then tried to cover it up.
