You can learn about the progress being made in the cleanup of federal sites in Oak Ridge on Wednesday.
The information will be shared at the annual Community Budget Workshop, which is scheduled from 4:30-6 p.m. Wednesday, May 9. It’s hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management, or OREM.
The Community Budget Workshop will be in the DOE Conference Room 2714-G at 235 Laboratory Road in Oak Ridge.
“This event serves as one of the most effective forums to educate the community about OREM’s progress, budget, and priorities,” a press release said. “This year’s discussion will focus on the growing financial support Oak Ridge’s environmental cleanup program has received from Congress, and how this support is helping accelerate cleanup and create new opportunities in Oak Ridge.”

DOE plans to finish cleanup work at ETTP, the former K-25 site, by 2020, and then move its efforts to the Y-12 National Security Complex and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. In the meantime, though, there are cleanup projects under way at Y-12 and ORNL, including construction of the Mercury Treatment Facility and eventual demolition of the Biology Complex at Y-12, and programs to dispose of uranium-233 and transuranic waste at ORNL.
