ANS Connecticut Section Speaker Meeting Announcement for September 12th, 2013

Environmental Cleanup of the Combustion Engineering Site

Please join us in welcoming John F. Conant, formerly of ABB/CE, who will speak about the Environmental Cleanup of the Combustion Engineering site on Dayhill Road in Windsor, CT.  This talk will address the cleanup of the site’s commercial nuclear contamination, the EPA Voluntary Remedial Action (VCA) program for chemicals, and the cleanup of Navy contamination, under FUSRAP (Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program), started in 1974 by the DOE for the old Manhattan and Cold War sites.  Many of our Westinghouse ANS members know this site well.  This talk should also be exciting for anyone interested in Environmental Engineering.
