Piketon Diffusion Plant Clean Up Comment Period Extended
Three structures where the uranium and other radioactive isotopes were processed would be demolished and buried on site. Current waste in landfills (which include portions of the Huntington Pilot Plant contaminated by nickel carbonyl , uranium and plutonium) would remain in place.
Piketon Mayor Bill Spencer told the Portsmouth Daily Times, "If there’s a chance to have this site cleaned up for industrialized use, that they clean up the existing landfills on the site, that you dig up and clean the underground plumes that are contaminated and, if you don’t do that, we don’t believe for a second that any company or anybody is going to come in here and reuse this land that is contaminated with a landfill that is already there.”
