Oak Ridge Finishes Largest Site Demolition to Date

July 2012 - This month, the Oak Ridge Environmental Management (EM) program finished the final phase of the Building K-33 demolition project. Workers with LATA-Sharp Remediation Services, the prime contractor for the project, removed areas of contaminated soil, backfilled the area with topsoil and seeded the land with grass. In April, they removed a 32-acre concrete slab that served as the foundation for the former 1.4 million-square-foot former gaseous diffusion plant in the East Tennessee Technology Park (ETTP). Constructed in 1954, the K-33 facility enriched uranium until 1985.
