August 22, 2020 – A Facility Disposition crew at EM’s West Valley Demonstration Project replaced the hoist in the Equipment Decontamination Room during essential mission-critical operations. This was the first work activity that involved both COVID-19 protocols and radiological personal protective equipment; and is associated with the future demolition of the Main Plant Process Building – an EM2020 Priority. The site is currently in Phase 2 of its Work Resumption Plan.
