Demolition begins at the last section standing of the K-25 building. Workers began tearing down the final six units of the mile-long Manhattan Project-era gaseous diffusion building that once was the largest building under one roof in the world.
In a ceremony attended by representatives of federal, state, and local historic preservation groups, DOE announced the formal completion of an agreement that will preserve the historic contributions of Oak Ridge’s K-25 site to the World War II Manhattan Project.
Eight employees from DOE's Oak Ridge Office were recognized at an awards ceremony for earning the Secretary’s Appreciation Award, one of the federal agency’s highest internal recognitions. The award honors employees who ‘go above and beyond the call of duty in their work endeavors.'
