Sulphur business following regulations for Radioactive Material - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Company official: Regulations being followed for radioactive material license

SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

A Sulphur business plans to apply for a Radioactive Material license, and several residents voiced concerns because of where it's located.

Advanced Corrosion Technologies and Training is located at 75 Center Circle Avenue in Sulphur, next door to a daycare, several churches and a playground.

The company already has a radioactive material permit for non-emitting materials they currently store in a shop at that location. But President Randy Prejean said that radioactive is minimal, and the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality approved the materials being at that location.

The new permit they plan to requested is the one that residents are concerned about. The permit is for much larger amounts of radioactive materials. But Prejean said citizens don't need to be worried, because the materials are not going to be housed at the location on Center Circle Avenue. 

The company will house the materials on property south of town, away from residential areas.

We'll have more on this story on later editions of 7 News.
