A Tuesday presentation by federal official Laura Wilkerson will include information on the proposed new Environmental Management Disposal Facility, a landfill that would be on the west side of the Y-12 National Security Complex.
Laura Wilkerson is a portfolio federal project director for the U.S. Department of Energy Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management. She will be the guest speaker at Lunch with the League at noon Tuesday, November 17, in the Social Hall of the Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church at 809 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
Her presentation will focus on environmental management and waste management in Oak Ridge.
Lunch with the League is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Oak Ridge. In a press release, the League said it has a position on waste disposal that addresses full disclosure of intent and public participation in the decision-making process.
“The League position is to protect the health of the community and environment,” the press release said.
Wilkerson is responsible for the planning and execution of environmental management (EM) clean-up and waste management activities at the Y-12 National Security Complex and for disposition of the Oak Ridge Transuranic waste inventory, the press release said.
Previously, she served as EM’s portfolio federal project director for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funded projects at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Y-12.
Lunch with the League is open to the public. There is no cost to attend, and reservations are not needed. Box lunches will be available starting at 11:30 a.m. on a first-come, first-served basis for $8, or you may bring your own. Coffee and tea are provided.
