WVDP completes demolition of former security guardhouse 

February 8, 2024, Olean Times Herald

The Department of Energy’s West Valley Demonstration Project has demolished a former security guardhouse built in 1965, one of the first facilities constructed at the former commercial nuclear fuel reprocessing facility. 

The facility was originally only 168 square feet until two additions increased its square footage to 700. A new guardhouse was constructed last year to better serve the continued needs of the site as it progresses toward the next cleanup phase. 

“While not the most complex or difficult demolition we have done at West Valley, it is still a significant historic milestone in our cleanup efforts,” said Jennifer Dundas, EM’s West Valley assistant director for the Office of Technical Services. “Our crews did an excellent job in their safe execution of this demolition work.”
