Olean Times Herald – Open‐air demolition of WVDP Main Plant discussed at Town Hall meeting

August 28, 2021 – Thirty‐five West Valley area residents and others attended a town hall meeting Wednesday on the proposed open‐air demolition of the Main Plant Process Building at the West Valley Demonstration Project.

Two meetings for up to 25 residents each were scheduled by the U.S. Department of Energy, the contractor, CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley, LLC and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. Attendance at the West Valley Hose Co. Firemen’s Hall was limited due to federal COVID‐19 protocols.

Ashford Supervisor John Pfeffer, a member of the West Valley Citizens Task Force, said he understands the science behind the planned demolition and supports it. “I’m quite pleased they (town hall) did it,” Pfeffer said on Friday.

“The intent was to have residents to have an opportunity to hear the details of the plan.” Link to article
