WEST VALLEY, N.Y. – Representatives from EM’s West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP), its cleanup contractor CH2MHILL BWXT West Valley (CHBWV), and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) recently presented checks to Bertrand Chaffee Hospital (BCH), Mercy Flight, and the West Valley Fire District 1 on behalf of WVDP.

   Once the site of the first and only commercial nuclear fuel reprocessing plant in the U.S., WVDP is now an environmental cleanup and waste management project located about 35 miles south of Buffalo. The cleanup is conducted by EM in cooperation with NYSERDA.
