LAS VEGAS – The EM Nevada Program recently completed environmental corrective actions at 70 sites where historic nuclear weapon system tests and support activities contaminated surface and shallow subsurface soil and debris. The sites are regulated by the Federal Facility Agreement and Consent Order (FFACO), a legally-binding agreement signed in 1996 that outlines a schedule of cleanup and monitoring commitments. Responsibility for long-term stewardship of the 70 FFACO sites, located on the Tonopah Test Range and Nevada Test and Training Range, is being transferred to DOE’s Office of Legacy Management (LM). Records management is key to the ongoing transfer process scheduled for completion later this year. Pictured are members of the team with the EM Nevada Program and environmental program services contractor Navarro, who recently shipped the first group of records to LM.
