Transfer, Pennsylvania 16154
Project Description: CSI provided Sr. Health Physics Technicians to support the Whittaker Corporation Site Remediation Project which included remediation of a 5.7 acre site of slag and soil byproducts located along the Shenango River in Transfer, Pennsylvania. The Whittaker Corporation, as well as prior owners of the site, used raw source material containing licensable quantities of thorium and uranium to process rare earth metals on site. The remediation was accomplished by means of site clearing, excavation of soil, soil separation, radiological waste minimization, and waste segregation. After completion of decommissioning activities, the site was remediated to levels that permitted license termination for unrestricted use. Whittaker is located within an industrial park, approximately 6 km south of Greenville, PA. The site comprises a 5.9 acre strip of land located between the Greenville Metals Plant and the Shenango River. The site is divided into four sections: Section 1 comprises the southern end of the site and consists of a mixture of slag and gravel which sits above a tributary leading to the Shenango River. Sections 2 and 4 are located in the center of the site. This area is comprised predominately of slag material. Two visually distinct types of slag are present. One slag is blue-green and the other is black. The blue-green slag has a glassy texture and the black slag is porous and rocklike. The black slag contains the radioactive material. Section 3 comprises the northern end of the site. A large part of Section 3 is covered by a concrete slab. Three sided bins containing slag material and piles of slag mixed with other debris are on top of the concrete pad. The bins contain low-level waste source materials and non-toxic industrial waste some of which is also contained in rusting drums. Facility topography (prior to the initiation of decommissioning) had been built up through the repeated disposal of slag, scrap metal, debris, and foundry sand. The slag piles had reached elevations of twenty feet or more above the adjoining river flood plain. The slag piles in Section 2 have been excavated and screened to remove the radioactive material, which was shipped for disposal.

As part of the cleanup, a nearly new backup diesel generator was removed from the building and later donated to a nonprofit hospital in North Dakota. Waste removal and demolition work was performed. The Los Alamos National Laboratory ("LANL") occupies approximately 40 square miles located in northern New Mexico. LANL is the leading research facility of the National Nuclear Security Administration and birthplace of the atomic bomb. It is managed by Los Alamos National Security LLC. Since its inception in 1943, the primary mission of LANL has been focused on high-level science and technology essential to national defense and global security. Many of the activities and operations at LANL have produced solids, liquids and gases that contain radioactive and non-radioactive hazardous materials. Such activities include conducting research and development programs in basic and applied chemistry, biology and physics; fabricating and testing explosives; cleaning chemically contaminated equipment; and working with radioactive materials. Since environmental management work began in 1989 at LANL, the number of legacy sites there requiring further cleanup has been reduced by approximately 60 percent through active remediation, or by confirming that no action is needed. Los Alamos The laboratory was founded during World War II as a secret, centralized facility to coordinate the scientific research of the Manhattan Project, the Allied project to develop the first nuclear weapons. In September 1942, the difficulties encountered in conducting preliminary studies on nuclear weapons at universities scattered across the country indicated the need for a laboratory dedicated solely to that purpose. The laboratory was established in 1943 as site Y of the Manhattan Project for a single purpose: to design and build an atomic bomb. It took just 20 months. On July 16, 1945, the world's first atomic bomb was detonated 200 miles south of Los Alamos at Trinity Site on the Alamogordo bombing range. Under the scientific leadership of J. Robert Oppenheimer and the military direction of General Leslie R. Groves, scientists at the Laboratory had successfully weaponized the atom.


Luckey Beryllium FUSRAP Site
Luckey, Ohio 43443
Project Description: CSI supplied Sr. Health Physics Technicians and Jr. Health Physics Technicians to support a field investigation that included soil sampling and radiological, geophysical, and topographic surveys on the Luckey Site. Additional groundwater monitoring wells were also installed. From 1942 to 1945, the Luckey Site was operated as a magnesium processing facility by National Lead. Between 1949 and 1958, the site was operated as a beryllium production facility by the Brush Beryllium Company (later Brush Wellman) for the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). During that time, the AEC sent approximately 1,000 tons of radiologically contaminated scrap metal to the site for the Diamond Magnesium Company to resume magnesium processing. The beryllium facility was closed in 1959. The Remedial Investigation found the site is contaminated with radiological and chemical waste in soils and the groundwater. The primary radiological contaminants at the site include radium, uranium and thorium. The primary chemical contaminants at the site are beryllium and lead. Beryllium was detected above the drinking water standard in three on-site groundwater monitoring wells and in a rarely used on-site production well, that is not used for drinking water. The levels detected do not pose an unacceptable risk under current use conditions. The Remedial investigation field work occurred from June to September, 1998, and June to July, 1999. The Luckey site was investigated under the U.S. Army Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP). Remediation of the Luckey Site is currently projected to begin in 2014, pending the completion of currently ongoing cleanups at other FUSRAP sites and the availability of program funding. Once soil remediation begins, the Corps will excavate impacted soils to achieve cleanup goals for unrestricted use of the site for subsistence farming. Excavated soils will be shipped off site for disposal at a licensed/permitted disposal facility.

Project Description: CSI supplied Health & Safety Professionals, Sr. Health Physics Technicians, and Jr. Health Physics Technicians to support the D&D of the K-33 former gaseous diffusion uranium enrichment facility on the East Tennessee Technology Park on the Oak Ridge Reservation. Removal of the K-33 facility was a large-scale construction (demolition) project – touted as the “Largest Completed Demo Project in Oak Ridge History” by DOE in a September 30, 2011, news release. Covering 64 acres of floor space, precise building deconstruction was performed in planned stages using the right equipment and effective engineering with extensive input provided by field professionals. Demolition work was followed by removal of building slabs and contaminated soil. More than a simple industrial demolition on a grand scale, CSI’s support for this project included characterization of radioactive and other hazardous waste materials (including PCBs and asbestos); transportation, treatment, and disposal of radioactive and hazardous materials; radiological field operations; identifying and mitigating safety risks; performing radiological and hazardous material surveys and sampling; formal readiness prior to field mobilization; and safe D&D of contaminated structures as well as removal of slabs and contaminated soils. Highlights of the project include: • Demolished 2.8M ft2 of floor space five months sooner than scheduled. • Implemented an innovative application of a powered scaffolding system for removal of ACM transite siding (normally used for commercial construction masonry work) and a unique “snip and pull” technique that reduced demolition duration. • Achieved an average demolition waste transportation rate of 81 loads per day. • Performed surgical excavation of contaminated soils, identifying and removing only soil identified as contaminated as a result of through-slab investigations to reduce radioactive waste volumes and save cost. • Mitigated the release of hexavalent chromium, an unexpected consequence of building demolition, with minimal impact to project cost and schedule. • Disposed of 164,000 tons of waste with an outstanding safety record and meeting all objectives of the contract. The K-33 effort has been coordinated with other DOE contractors, including the Independent Verification Contractor, the ETTP EM Management & Integration Contractor (BJC), the BJC Power Integration Group (PIG), CROET, and Contractor Operations Management International (OMI). The K-33 work activities and removal actions are regulated by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980 and the Federal Facility Agreement (FFA) for the Oak Ridge Reservation. This project is guided by CERCLA for the building demolition and RCRA for the slab and soil removal, resulting in the generation of both RCRA and CERCLA waste streams. CSI supported the accelerated building demolition by five months and accelerated debris removal by three months. These efficiencies made it possible to add slab and contaminated soil removal to the scope of work. As well as successfully completed the field work associated with this additional work scope one month early, in August 2012.

Project Description: CSI supplied Sr. Health Physics Technicians to support site characterization with EnergySolutions as part of the LLNS (Lawrence Livermore National Security) transition team responsible for the Environmental Remediation and D&D Program evaluation. The team also supported transition activities related to RCRA permits, waste management and facilities and infrastructure. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has applied cutting-edge science and technology to enhance national security. The Laboratory was established in 1952 at the height of the Cold War to meet urgent national security needs by advancing nuclear weapons science and technology. Livermore made its first major breakthrough with the design of a thermonuclear warhead for missiles that could be launched from highly survivable submarines. The Laboratory went on to develop the first high-yield warheads compact enough that several could be carried on each ballistic missile Renowned physicists E.O. Lawrence argued for the creation of a second laboratory to augment the efforts of the laboratory at Los Alamos. At his laboratory on the Berkeley campus of the University of California, Lawrence had created the model of how large-scale science should be pursued — through multidisciplinary team efforts. Activities began at Livermore under the aegis of the University of California to follow Lawrence’s team-science approach and be a “new ideas” laboratory.

Zion Station D&D Project
Zion, Illinois 60099
Project Description: CSI supplied Sr. Health Physics Technicians to support site characterization at the Zion Station D&D Project. During the course of the project, some major scope activities to be completed include transferring over 2,000 spent fuel assemblies to storage on an ISFSI, removing major components such as the reactor vessel, steam generators, pressurizers, turbines, generators, main power transformers and other large components, demolishing and removing all buildings and structures with the exception of the ISFSI, transporting and disposing of radioactive and hazardous waste and remediation of the site to unrestricted release criteria as specified by the NRC. Zion Solutions entered into an arrangement with Exelon to dismantle Exelon's Zion nuclear facility located in Zion, Illinois, which ceased operation in 1998. Upon closing, Exelon transferred to Zion Solutions substantially all of the assets (other than land) associated with Zion Station, including all assets held in its nuclear decommissioning trust fund. In consideration for Exelon's transfer of those assets, Zion Solutions agreed to assume decommissioning and other liabilities associated with Zion Station. Zion Solutions also took possession and control of the land associated with Zion Station pursuant to a lease agreement executed at the closing. Zion Solutions is under contract to complete the required decommissioning work according to an established schedule and to construct a dry cask storage facility on the land for the spent nuclear fuel currently held in spent fuel pools at the Zion Station. Exelon retains ownership of the land and the spent nuclear fuel and associated operational responsibilities following completion of the Zion Station D&D project. The NRC approved the transfer of the facility operating licenses and conforming license amendments from Exelon to Zion Solutions. At the conclusion of the project any remaining plant facilities and associated amended licenses are returned to Exelon and the lease terminates.


Dresden Shipment of obsolete materials
Dresden, Illinois 60450
Project Description: CSI supplied a Radiological and Hazardous Waste Broker to support the removal and disposal of obsolete materials and equipment, including turbine casings and rotors, from Dresden Electric Generating Station. Turbine rotors and casings were removed from Dresden and transferred to a Memphis, Tennessee facility for processing. Engineering and planning work was performed for similar upcoming outages. The waste materials were transported for disposal at the Clive, Utah facility. In 1978, Dresden Unit 1 was retired and is now designated a Nuclear Historic Landmark by the American Nuclear Society. While in operation, the unit was capable of generating 210 MW of electricity. Dresden Units 2 and 3 began commercial operation in July 1970 and November 1971, respectively.

Building K-33 Demolition & Disposition Project
Oak Ridge, Tennessee 37830
Project Description: CSI supplied Health & Safety Professionals, Sr. Health Physics Technicians, and Jr. Health Physics Technicians to support the D&D of the K-33 former gaseous diffusion uranium enrichment facility on the East Tennessee Technology Park on the Oak Ridge Reservation. Removal of the K-33 facility was a large-scale construction (demolition) project – touted as the “Largest Completed Demo Project in Oak Ridge History” by DOE in a September 30, 2011, news release. Covering 64 acres of floor space, precise building deconstruction was performed in planned stages using the right equipment and effective engineering with extensive input provided by field professionals. Demolition work was followed by removal of building slabs and contaminated soil. More than a simple industrial demolition on a grand scale, CSI’s support for this project included characterization of radioactive and other hazardous waste materials (including PCBs and asbestos); transportation, treatment, and disposal of radioactive and hazardous materials; radiological field operations; identifying and mitigating safety risks; performing radiological and hazardous material surveys and sampling; formal readiness prior to field mobilization; and safe D&D of contaminated structures as well as removal of slabs and contaminated soils. Highlights of the project include: • Demolished 2.8M ft2 of floor space five months sooner than scheduled. • Implemented an innovative application of a powered scaffolding system for removal of ACM transite siding (normally used for commercial construction masonry work) and a unique “snip and pull” technique that reduced demolition duration. • Achieved an average demolition waste transportation rate of 81 loads per day. • Performed surgical excavation of contaminated soils, identifying and removing only soil identified as contaminated as a result of through-slab investigations to reduce radioactive waste volumes and save cost. • Mitigated the release of hexavalent chromium, an unexpected consequence of building demolition, with minimal impact to project cost and schedule. • Disposed of 164,000 tons of waste with an outstanding safety record and meeting all objectives of the contract. The K-33 effort has been coordinated with other DOE contractors, including the Independent Verification Contractor, the ETTP EM Management & Integration Contractor (BJC), the BJC Power Integration Group (PIG), CROET, and Contractor Operations Management International (OMI). The K-33 work activities and removal actions are regulated by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980 and the Federal Facility Agreement (FFA) for the Oak Ridge Reservation. This project is guided by CERCLA for the building demolition and RCRA for the slab and soil removal, resulting in the generation of both RCRA and CERCLA waste streams. CSI supported the accelerated building demolition by five months and accelerated debris removal by three months. These efficiencies made it possible to add slab and contaminated soil removal to the scope of work. As well as successfully completed the field work associated with this additional work scope one month early, in August 2012.

O'Rourke Excavator K-25 Release Verification Survey
Oak Ridge, Tennessee 37830
Project Description: CSI supplied a Senior Radiological Engineer with experience as a radiological and hazardous waste shipper to perform a confirmatory survey of O'Rourke Wrecking Company’s specialty demolition heavy equipment (Cat 385C Excavator) used at the K-25 facility in Oak Ridge Tennessee. O’Rourke Specialty Contracting Inc. leased a Cat 385C Excavator to UCOR at the K-25 demolition project. K-25 is a former uranium enrichment facility of the Manhattan Project which used the gaseous diffusion method. The plant is located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, on the southwestern end of the Oak Ridge Reservation. The excavator was used at K-25 inside the radiologically contaminated area for approximately 16 months. The isotopes of concern in the areas that the excavator was used are uranium isotopes. Technetium-99 is present on the K-25 demolition site but is isolated from the uranium contaminated areas by a buffer zone to preclude cross contamination. Free-release of the excavator from the radiologically contaminated areas was a time consuming and complicated evolution requiring a number of working groups to coordinate disassembly, decontamination, and radiological surveys of the excavator in stages. O’Rourke Specialty Contracting Inc. requested an independent verification of the equipment free-release by Carl’s Services Inc.
