Department of Energy LogoThe Department of Energy’s Environmental Management program recently completed five ARRA-funded projects at the Oak Ridge site.

The projects included: expansion of 2 landfills at the Oak Ridge Reservation, a 385,000 cubic yard expansion of the Sanitary Landfill (a designated area for non-hazardous waste), and the addition of another disposal cell with a capacity of 465,000 cubic yards.  The expansion allows for the local disposal of waste generated by environmental cleanup initiatives, eliminating costly shipping expenses.

Pre-demolition and demolition projects at the East Tennessee Technology Park and the Y-12 National Security complex were also recently completed.
