Show Notes

At Waste Management 2022 in Phoenix, DOE Environmental Management Chief of Staff Mike Nartker announced that the EM cleanup map had shrunk to 15 sites with the completion of cleanup at Brookhaven National Laboratory. That's down dramatically from the original 107 sites when EM was formed in 1989.  How much do we know about the 15 sites remaining to be cleaned up?  Some like Hanford, Oak Ridge and Savannah River are high-profile and high-budget. We hear a lot about them. Others are lower profile. Today, the Gone Fission Nuclear Report podcast shines the spotlight on one of those--the Energy Technology Engineering Center in Ventura, California.  Plus get the latest news from the Environmental Management program.
