Portsmouth Diffusion Plant 50 Miles from Huntington
During our articles on the Huntington Pilot Plant, one of the contributors to the toxic radiation came from recycling materials that came from Portsmouth.
The Portsmouth/Piketon plant owned by the Atomic Energy Commission/ Department of Energy and then operated by Goodyear manufactured atomic weapons components. Thus, only 50 miles from Huntington as the crow flies greater amounts of uranium, fluoride, plutonium, and other radioactive waste still stands, although it is in the process of decommissioning and decontamination.
Still, proposals for re-use of the site generally have an atomic component ranging from the American Centrifuge to a proposal for a new smelting recycling facility for atomic waste.
Back in the early days of the Cold War (i.e. the 50s), a government produced documentary details the Construction of this Nuclear Weapons Plant.
