On Wednesday, June 1, 2011, the Office of Legacy Management (LM) Weldon Spring, Missouri, Site hosted the State and Tribal Government Working Group (STGWG) for a half-day tour of the site to provide insight on the daily operations of an LM site. The event was part of the STGWG 2011 Spring Meeting, which was held in St. Louis, Missouri, May 31 through June 2, 2011.
Meeting attendees heard presentations on the history of the site, current groundwater conditions, and performance of the on-site engineered disposal facility. The site tour focused on LM and institutional controls. Attendees also had the option to participate in a walk to the top of the disposal cell, visit other portions of the site, and observe a demonstration of the sampling process for monitoring wells.
In addition, the Weldon Spring site tour included an overview of the LM mission and a panel discussion that was focused on lessons learned associated with obtaining Weldon Spring site institutional controls. The discussion panel included representatives from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the Missouri Department of Transportation.
