EM Update – West Valley Reduces Risks, Prepares to Demolish Main Plant, an EM 2022 Priority

April 19, 2022 – Workers at the West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) recently removed a large ventilation duct from the Main Plant Process Building, another step in reducing risk and preparing the facility for demolition, an EM 2022 priority.

As part of deactivation activities, crews finished cutting and removing the 26‐inch‐diameter duct that carried exhaust from past operations at the building.

“The effort in the Vent Wash Room was successful because of the extensive planning, and deliberate and safe execution of the work,” said Steve Bousquet, EM’s WVDP deputy federal project director for the Main Plant project. “The WVDP team continues DOE’s mission to reduce legacy risks while protecting employees, the public and the environment.” Link to Update
