The U.S. Department of Energy has made great strides in cleaning up the Oak Ridge Reservation of outdated and contaminated buildings and soils. But since more work has been added to the original cleanup scope, additional landfill space is needed to handle the additional waste.
DOE has proposed an area near the current low-level waste landfill on Bear Creek Road near the Y-12 National Security Complex.
Join us for a presentation on DOE’s proposal to build a new facility that will handle all waste expected to be generated by the remaining cleanup of the Oak Ridge Reservation.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. Wednesday, February 11, at the DOE Information Center at 1 Science.gov Way in Oak Ridge (near the intersection of Oak Ridge Turnpike and Athens Road). It’s a meeting of the Oak Ridge Site Specific Advisory Board, a volunteer group that provides recommendations to the DOE environmental cleanup program.
The presentation is scheduled to be given by Laura Wilkerson, and it will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
