EM Update – West Valley Advances Facility Deactivation by Relocating Containers for Disposal

May 14, 2019 –  EM and its cleanup contractor at the West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) Site gained ground in the deactivation of a Cold War facility after recently relocating two 69,000-pound containers for eventual offsite disposal. 

Workers with CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley (CHBWV) are deactivating the Fuel Receiving and Storage facility for future demolition. The work includes removing asbestos-containing material from 

the facility, which was used to receive and store spent nuclear fuel during fuel reprocessing operations from 1966 to 1972. Link to Update
