The Bradford Era – West Valley resumes shipping wastes by rail

July 9, 2021 – Shipments by rail of hazardous material and some low‐level radioactive waste have resumed at the West Valley Demonstration Project.

The nuclear cleanup at the nation’s only commercial nuclear fuel reprocessing center in the town of Ashford has been ongoing since the early 1980s.

It is overseen by the U.S. Department of Energy and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.

Sixty‐eight buildings have now been demolished and removed from the site to safe storage and disposal sites. Much of that waste was shipped by truck. Link to article
