EM Update -West Valley to Remove Ductwork to Prepare for Future Main Plant Demolition

April 20, 2021 – West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) workers are preparing to remove ductwork that
carried exhaust from past operations at the Main Plant Process Building as part of deactivation preparations for the
facility’s future demolition — among EM’s 2021 priorities.

EM and its prime contractor CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley (CHBWV) recently constructed a containment tent above a room and access door in the building to support cutting a 26‐inch‐wide duct inside the room

“The WVDP team’s work was well planned and executed in an effort to maintain safety, including the addition of COVID‐19 protocols,” EM WVDP Deputy Federal Project Director Steve Bousquet said. Link to Update
