This optimization will help the facility run more efficiently, reduce frequency of future maintenance activities and most importantly, treat more groundwater!

small   More waste is coming out of the 324 Building airlock. Earlier this year, workers packaged the waste, and removed some of the smaller combustible items, like plastic and contaminated clothing. Now, they are removing large pieces of waste, like wiring, cables and other abandoned equipment. The waste must be removed to allow installation of remote-operated soil removal equipment in a nearby hot cell. The contaminated soil must be removed before the building can be demolished.
