September 7, 2021 – The West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) continues to prepare for the future teardown of the Main Plant Process Building. Beginning demolition of the facility this year is among EM’s ambitious 2021 priorities.
With 98% of the building’s contamination removed over the past two decades, crews with WVDP cleanup contractor CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley will address 30% of the remaining contamination embedded in the building’s concrete in the next several months. Any contamination left will be fixed in place and carefully removed during deconstruction of the Main Plant. Link to Update
