Biographical / Historical

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) Reading Room was established at the Rocky Flats Cold War Museum, when these documents were donated from the Colorado Department of Health. The Rocky Flats Cold War Museum began in the late 1990s, when local citizens and those personally affected got together with the intent to preserve the history and artifacts from the cleanup of the site. Documents included historical, environmental and scientific aspects that dealt with the closure of Rocky Flats, including the reports and documents found in the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Reading Room.
