Shocking news out of Fallon Friday as some residents are learning. Their well water contains a highly-toxic radioactive material. That news is racing through a community that's seen more than its share of bad news in recent years.

Polonium, which is created at Uranium decays, was found in 17 of 25 wells in Fallon, all drawing from the same aquifer on the east side of the valley.
