Olean Times Herald – High‐level material removal paves way for WVDP demolition

September 1, 2022 – Eight high‐integrity containers containing radioactive water filtering materials were removed last week from near the Main Plant Process Building at the West Valley Demonstration Project.

The Department of Energy and contractor CH2M Hill BWXT West Valley LLC announced the relocation of the shielded containers weighing between 68,000 and 80,000 pounds on Tuesday.

The water‐filtering materials were from the former Fuel Receiving and Storage facility water treatment system which was used to receive and store spent nuclear fuel during fuel reprocessing operations from 1966 to 1972. Link to article
