Final phase

Overview of the West Valley Demonstration Project, a nuclear facility decontamination and deactivation project undertaken by West Valley Nuclear Services Co., New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOD). The project was completed on budget, ahead of schedule, and received the PMI Buffalo, N.Y. chapter's 2003 project of the year award. Among the project's notable features were the rigorous safety training that employees received, the development of elaborate readiness procedures, and numerous mock-ups and run-throughs that resulted in lower-than-expected radiation exposure levels to personnel.
