Springville Journal -CHBWV celebrates 10 years of safe and compliant cleanup at the WVDP

November 11, 2021 – CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley celebrated 10 years of safe and compliant cleanup activities at the West Valley Demonstration Project. Since August 2011, CHBWV, the Department of Energy’s cleanup contractor, has continued to accelerate cleanup, eliminate potential environmental hazards and reduce the footprint and life‐cycle costs at the site.

Bryan Bower, WVDP DOE Director stated, “The work performed over the last 10 years has changed the landscape of the site forever; and is an important accomplishment in the progress to decommission the site. This effort shows that robust engineering controls coupled with state‐of‐the‐science monitoring can accomplish the safe removal of nuclear facilities.” Link to article
