Subject: [CPEO-MEF] FORMER SITES, RADIATION: 'Balance of plant' remediation alternatives at the Niagara Falls Storage Site, NY

Roughly 60 participants learned more on the Army Corps’ alternative 3 “balance of plant” selection plan for the 191-acre Niagara Falls Storage Site in Lewiston during an Oct. 21 virtual presentation.

The next phase in the Army Corps’ remediation plans for the government facility on Pletcher Road, the alternative 3 plan follows on its feasibility study issued in 2019 for the balance of plant on the operable units at the NFSS, as well as ground water units. It comes off the Army Corps’ record of decision on the $490 million remediation project announced earlier for the 10-acre Interim Waste Containment Structure at NFSS to completely remove the cell’s radioactive contaminants.

“A record of decision was signed for the Interim Waste Containment Structure in 2019. The selected remedy was to completely remove the contents … the most significant source of contamination at the site,” the Army Corps said. “Since then, the district has actively pursued the development of the remedial design contract. … We expect to award this design contract in 2021.”
