The Adrian Site in Adrian, Michigan was remediated under the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP). FUSRAP was established in 1974 to remediate sites where radioactive contamination remained from Manhattan Project and early U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) operations.
The Adrian Site was operated by Bridgeport Brass Company in the 1950s. Uranium metal was extruded at the site under contract with the AEC for use in the fabrication of fuel elements for production reactors.
General Motors Corporation remediated radioactive contamination at the site in the 1970s and additional remediation was conducted under FUSRAP in 1995.
Supplemental limits were applied to residual radioactive material left in the piping system, and DOE released the site for use without radiological restrictions. No institutional controls are in effect at the privately-owned site, and DOE does not require on-site monitoring or surveillance. Office of Legacy Management long-term stewardship responsibilities consist of managing FUSRAP site records and responding to stakeholder inquiries.
