Olean Times Herald – Soil and structure removal project completed at WVDP

July 8, 2022 – Environmental Management and its prime contractor CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley (CHBWV) completed the permeable treatment wall soil and structure removal project and restored the area as part of its ongoing cleanup efforts at the West Valley Demonstration Project.

Materials from the soil and structure removal project were used in constructing the permeable treatment wall, which remains in place.

“This project demonstrated the benefits of using the rail line for waste operations, as well as for increased safety, efficiency, and cost‐savings,” said Steve Bousquet, Department of Energy‐WVDP Deputy Federal Project Director for the Main Plant Process Building. “Our dedicated employees continue to find ways to further improve our cleanup efforts as we look for ways to safely accelerate decommissioning and remediation efforts for the future.” Link to article
