Tour Notes:
Cameras are welcome. All equipment is subject to scanning/screening on entrance and exit from the Reactor Facility. Low-heeled shoes and cotton or other natural fiber clothing is recommended as they will be less likely than synthetic fabrics to absorb naturally occurring radon within the Reactor Facility that could result in additional time to be surveyed on exiting.
