What We Do

Safely Reducing Environmental Risks

We are cleaning up contaminated, unused facilities on the Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR). In addition to removing excess facilities, we maintain facilities across ORR that are waiting for disposition. We also provide critical upgrades to extend the life of active, but aging, facilities. This continues the same work done by the former UCOR from 2011 to 2022.

The last ETTP structure slated for demolition is coming down. Workers began removing the K-1099 facility at Blair Quarry. The facility was originally used as a valve tester in association with a NASA project. It was then converted to a seismic monitoring station. It was among 70 small structures—such as a water tank and meteorological tower—that remained after major ETTP cleanup was completed in 2020. Since then, workers have steadily removed these structures to support land reuse and reindustrialization. Removal of this monitoring station is expected to be completed next week. ...
