Springville Journal -West Valley resumes waste shipments by train following upgrades to rail line

July 15, 2021 – The Department of Energy and its cleanup contractor at the West Valley Demonstration Project has resumed the use of a rail line to ship waste offsite this month.

“The resumption of rail shipments signals a new beginning for the WVDP and will bring many benefits to the future cleanup of the site,” WVDP Director Bryan Bower said. “This work today will help accelerate decommissioning and remediation activities in the very near future.”

WVDP worked with the Buffalo‐Pittsburgh Railroad Administration to rehabilitate the Western New York Nuclear Service Center rail spur and BPRR’s main line. Link to article
