The Mound Science and Energy Museum (MSEM) is an active, volunteer-led organization located at the former U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Mound site in Miamisburg, Ohio. MSEM keeps the 60-year history of scientific discoveries, inventions, and ingenuity of Mound site workers alive.
CINCINNATI – EM’s ability to negotiate government contracts with the best value for taxpayers is supported by the challenging work of employees who first determine the fair value of services under these contracts.
Cincinnati -- The U.S. Department of Energy today issued a Final Request for Proposal (RFP), for the continued performance of infrastructure support services at the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant in Piketon, Ohio.

PIKETON, Ohio – As assistant principal of Portsmouth West High School, Eric Nichols was aware of EM’s Science Alliance, an interactive science fair aimed at high school juniors in southern Ohio. But this year he decided to get a firsthand look.
The federal government, including the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Legacy Management (LM), has been challenged by Executive and DOE orders to reach two goals related to energy usage and metering. The first goal states that LM should reduce energy use intensity (EUI) by 30 percent by fiscal year (FY) 2020, as compared to the FY 2003 baseline. The metering goal was for LM to have 90 percent of its energy use individually metered by FY 2013, a goal that LM will now be able to meet by expanded metering of groundwater treatment systems at its sites.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has partnered with local communities to determine the best reuse of land, assets, and facilities, and the Mound-site community is no exception. In May, DOE’s Office of Legacy Management (LM) and the Mound Development Corporation (MDC) co-hosted a reindustrialization workshop at the Mound site in Miamisburg, Ohio.
Uranium contamination in the Great Miami Aquifer—at the Fernald Preserve, Ohio, Site—is being removed from the groundwater through a pump-and-treatment operation, which until this year, involved the operation of 23 extraction wells. Figure 1 shows the footprint of the uranium plume and the 23 extraction wells. Concurrence and support from the U.S.
