Containment - Nuclear Fishing - Clip

Clip | 1m 29s

This excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary Containment takes a tour of the swampy area in Burke County, Georgia, adjacent to Savannah River Site nuclear facility. The distance separating the two is the width of the river itself. "No fishing" signs dot the area, and as one of our guides points out, a lot of people think that's a territory thing rather than a warning about radioactive fish.
