LA’s water gets weird

I know it’s all hindsight, but I think I’ll stick to Tiger Balm, thanks. I’m still working on the details, these springs were located at 5663 Melrose Avenue, between Larchmont and El Centro “near the old village of Colegrove.” There were small surface streams in the area, but can’t confirm surface irradiated springs at this time, and I consider it highly unlikely. The Bimini and Oxford hot springs were from wells, so that’s a possibility here. There were actual sulphur springs at the base of the Hollywood Hills.
Now if you really are looking for a radioactive (former) stream, try the filled ravine at the VA in Brentwood. That’s one of our lost streams. Low-level radioactive waste was dumped in there in (I believe) the 50s- and was setting off geiger counters and tempers a few years back.
