Since 2011, we have been cleaning up contaminated, unused facilities on the Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR). In 2020, we became the first in the world to safely remove a gaseous diffusion plant. In addition to removing excess facilities, we maintain facilities across ORR that are waiting for disposition, and provide critical upgrades to extend the life of active, but aging, facilities.

Crews are deactivating three contaminated facilities at Y-12 after transitioning them to a “cold and dark” status in which all potential hazardous energy sources are isolated — a crucial step before full-scale deactivation.
