Guam--The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has completed an initial
round of sampling in Guam's waters as part of a search for nuclear
contamination after the Navy last year discovered a submarine based here
had leaked radioactive water.

In a press conference today, USEPA scientist Samuel Poppell said that
environmental researchers over the last 10 days have collected scores of
sediment and water samples. After reviewing the samples and data
gathered even before the leak, Poppell says his early findings suggest
there is no cause for alarm.
