Olean Times Herald, November 15, 2023

WEST VALLEY — Department of Energy’s Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Jeff Avery recently visited the West Valley Demonstration Project to observe cleanup progress and meet with employees and key community stakeholders.

A highlight of his trip was an event to celebrate West Valley prime contractor CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley (CHBWV) recently receiving the DOE Voluntary Protection Program’s (VPP) Star of Excellence.

“The primary importance in West Valley’s cleanup mission is the men and women in the field who implement the work plans and deliver projects to completion in a safe and compliant manner that meets or exceeds regulations and requirements,” Avery said during an address to the West Valley workforce. “This can only be achieved because of the tremendous and constant focus on keeping each other safe.”
