July 14, 2022 – EM and its prime contractor CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley 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.
Workers used the recently upgraded rail line to safely ship 300 containers of soil and 131 containers of debris generated from this project. Both soil and debris containers were shipped from West Valley to Clive, Utah for disposal. These shipments add to a safe transportation record of more than 25,000 rail miles from January through May 2022. Link to article
