What is being done with the radioactive waste from the cleanup?

0

All the radioactive waste at Plum Brook Station (PBS) is low-level, and nearly all is dry and solid. Since decommissioning began in 2002, NASA has sent more than 10 million pounds of packaged LLRW and mixed waste to licensed disposal facilities in Utah and South Carolina. Most of these shipments involved lightly contaminated loose and fixed equipment, sent to the Energy Solutions facility in Utah. During decommissioning NASA also excavated and shipped more than 15 million pounds of lightly contaminated soil to Energy Solutions and to the IMPACT Services processing facility in Tennessee. NASA provides advance notification to local emergency responders before LLRW shipments.
