WEST VALLEY, N.Y.EM’s cleanup contractor at the West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) Site recently surpassed one million work hours without a lost-time accident or illness. “This and other work at the West Valley Demonstration Project only happens because of the skills and commitment of our employees to complete work in a safe and compliant manner,” EM WVDP Director Bryan Bower said of CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley (CHBWV) and its subcontractors. “This work, safely performed, brings many benefits to the ongoing cleanup and future closure of our EM site.” CHBWV crews pictured here use a large crane to load a section of a shield door from the site’s vitrification plant during demolition activities. Workers successfully demolished the 10,000-square-foot plant in September, marking EM’s largest and most complex environmental cleanup achievement at the site to date.
