In our August episode, we attend the groundbreaking for the Environmental Management Disposal Facility, and we talk with Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, EPA Acting Regional Administrator Jeaneanne Gettle, and TDEC Commissioner David Salyers about what it took to get to this stage of the project. We also learn about a partnership underway with Oak Ridge National Laboratory that’s exploring how EM crews can use robots to perform cleanup tasks in highly contaminated areas. Summer temperatures hit their highest marks this month, and our team asked how employees are staying safe in the field. Finally, we have an employee going for gold! Joe Carson has been playing basketball for 60 years, and his skills have led him all the way to the senior Olympics. Learn about those topics and much more in this month’s episode.
