I'm sorry but Mr. Catlin's firm didn't create this password protected file for their own use, they were contracted by the Department of the Navy to construct it. None of the information contained in that file was made available to the public nor to the ATSDR...it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why! It contained information concerning the loss of over a million gallons of gasoline that had leaked into the groundwater aquifer where Hadnot Point's drinking water was being drawn from. Prior to ATSDR's discovery of this password protected file, the public, ATSDR, and congress were all under the impression that a maximum of 50,000gals. of fuel was all that had been lost out of the Hadnot Point fuel farm for the entire 50 year period of its existence (1941-1991).
