The New York, New York, Site, 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 operations.
Located on the west side of Manhattan, the New York Site was used by the Manhattan Engineer District in the early 1940s for the short-term storage of uranium concentrates that were later distributed to government facilities involved in nuclear reactor and atomic weapons programs.
In 1990, DOE designated the site for remediation under FUSRAP. DOE remediated contaminated areas in the warehouses and certified that the site complied with applicable cleanup criteria and standards in 1995. The property was then released for unrestricted use.
DOE transferred responsibility for the site from the Office of Environmental Management to its Office of Legacy Management in 2004.
No supplemental limits or institutional controls are in effect at the privately-owned site, and DOE does not require on-site monitoring or surveillance. LM’s long-term stewardship responsibilities consist of managing FUSRAP site records and responding to stakeholder inquiries.
