S1 Episode 3 - Gone Fission Nuclear Report 11/22/21 Dr. Harold Conner, UCOR Sr Advisor & Former K-25 Plant Manager
Play • 32 min

In this week's report, Savannah River Site officials say a "very, very small" portion of the workforce elected not to get the COVID vaccine, resulting in some retirements, resignations or terminations.  A change in the way the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) counts waste volume shifts the repository from being half full to only a third full.  At Hanford, the Tank Side Cesium Removal (TSCR) system moves from testing to operations.  And a protest has been filed in the $8.3 billion contract award to UCOR for cleanup of the Oak Ridge Reservation.

Plus, you'll enjoy an interview with Dr. Harold Conner, whose 50-year career went full circle from plant manager at the Oak Ridge Gaseous Diffusion Plant to a director in the world's first cleanup of a gaseous diffusion complex.
