WVDP presents $90K to local organizations providing site support 

Salamanca Press, May 17, 2024 —

 Mercy Flight, West Valley Fire District #1 and Bertrand Chaffee Hospital recently received checks on behalf of the West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP). 

Presenting checks were representatives from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley, LLC (CHBWV). 

These three local organizations serve as valuable resources for WVDP employees and the surrounding community. Bertrand Chaffee Hospital ($5,000) and its staff provide medical support, Mercy Flight ($5,000) provides air ambulance service and the West Valley Fire District ($80,000) volunteers provide fire and emergency services. 

“Showing our appreciation for the commitment and dedication of these organizations is a highlight of the year,” said Jennifer Dundas, DOE Assistant Director Office of Technical Services. “Together, they help us keep our employees, the public, and the environment safe when performing our cleanup mission. It is truly an asset to have trained and qualified emergency responders available to support the project.”
