Radiation-contaminated areas in the United States

When I arrived in 1991 the cleanup was still going on, with some serious incidents occurring during my study. I collected Heteroptera true bugs and Cicada Homoptera around the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant, at Governor’s Stable, Goldsboro, New Cumberland, Swatara, Oberlin, Londonderry and Royalton. The worst deformities I found in a distance of five from the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant.
