Salamanca Press – WVDP erosion modeling question at root of nuclear cleanup

September 8, 2022 – Ray Vaughan is a charter member of the West Valley Citizens Task Force, which was formed in 1978 — prior to the passage of the West Valley Demonstration Project Act of 1980.
Task force members monitor efforts of the U.S. Department of Energy, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and site contractors to clean up the site of the country’s first commercial spent nuclear fuel reprocessing plant.

Late last month the task force heard a presentation on erosion modeling, which may not sound exciting, but it is at the root of the question about what to do with radioactive waste beneath the surface of the nuclear cleanup site on a plateau overlooking creeks that empty into Lake Erie.
