Welcome to the BEES Camden Radiation Investigation!
We represent an alliance of students from New Jersey's
Camden and Cherry Hill West High Schools. We have worked together
to investigate an environmental issue of Camden County - The
Welsbach / General Gas Mantle Site. Over the course of 1995-1996,
we have learned to appreciate and cooperate with one another to
reach our common goal of improving the environment of a Southern
New Jersey neighborhood.
This web site is only a small portion of the massive amount of
work all the students, faculty, and administrators did. Within these
pages, one can view reports on the history of the Welsbach site,
various health considerations concerning radiation, types of
governmental involvement, proposed alternative uses for the site,
opinions of people living in the contaminated area, as well as other
This investigation was studied through the sponsorship of
Building Environmental Education Solutions, Inc. (BEES).
