Crews at the DOE Idaho Site Complete Buried Waste Cleanup Accomplishment

Crews with Fluor Idaho, LLC, at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Idaho Site have completed a significant cleanup accomplishment that further protects the underlying Snake River Plain Aquifer, the primary drinking and irrigation water source for more than 300,000 Idahoans.

Workers recently satisfied a provision of a 2008 agreement among the DOE, state of Idaho and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by packaging a total of 7,485 cubic meters of exhumed hazardous and radioactive waste that was generated at the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons production plant near Denver and was then buried in Idaho in the 1950s and 1960s. The amount of waste exhumed is equivalent to nearly 36,000 55-gallon drums of material.
