Drop that gauge

Posted By on Mon, Mar 31, 2008 at 5:33 PM

The state Health Department says a radioactive gauge, in a yellow plastic transport case, turned up missing from a construction firm vehicle near Brinkley. It could pose a health risk if carried for an extended period of time. The gauge, which measures soil moisture, weighs 90 pounds. Anyone finding the gauge should call their nearest police or 1-800-633-1735, the radioactive materials program.
