      Spray Irrigation at Rocky Flats, a report by George H. Setlock, health, safety and environment supervisor for Rockwell International, states that “treated sanitary effluent has been spray irrigated at various Rocky Flats buffer zone locations since December ” Setlock estimates that million gallons per year were : Josh Schlossberg. “The evidence they found was ultimately considered by Colorado's first-ever special grand jury, empaneled in August After two years of deliberations, the jurors wanted to indict eight individuals — some from the Department of Energy, some from Rockwell International, which ran the plant for the DOE — for environmental d, in March the Department of . The former director of the Health Department of Jefferson County, where Rocky Flats is located, studied cancer rates for the region. He divided the downwind area into four zones—closest to farthest—and found, after correcting for age, race, sex, and ethnicity, that male cancer rates in the zone closest to the plant were 24 percent higher.
