Processed Uranium from Fairfield, OH

The Atomic Energy Commission contracted the Associate Aircraft Tool and Manufacturing Company to machine and shape uranium for use at Hanford and Savannah River reactors. Approximately 95,000 pieces of uranium stock was machined at this site from February to September 1956. From October through November of that year the site was decontaminated and the alpha radiation was determined to be below acceptable levels.

In June 1992, a radiological survey identified uranium contamination on the site. Another survey was conducted in 1992 and more residual uranium contamination was found in and around the building. From December 1994 to June 1995, remediation of the site was conducted. All soils and residual radioactive materials were removed from the site and disposed of as low-level radioactive waste in Clive, Utah.
