Sign Petition Prevent Ohio River Becoming Nuclear Waste Dump; Listen to Cover Up Documentation from You Tube

(Petition provided by PRESS and others opposing burying nuclear waste from the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant on site, where the radioactive/classified remains of the Huntington Pilot Plant disassembled in Huntington and driven by open trucks in 1978-1979 in a high risk burial ground on the PGDP site.)


A call to Action
Taking names until late Jan...going on 700 names now please sign and share

Please sign the petition to stop the DUMP. Open up the record of Decision.


Plagued within the little-known town of Piketon, Ohio, lies a nuclear catastrophe waiting to happen! What I am talking about is the Ohio EPA and Department of Energy approved on-site waste disposal facility (OSWDF) at the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant. The plant enriched weapons-grade uranium for nuclear bombs throughout the Cold War. Now, they want to bury the disassembled plant on-site, directly above the largest fresh-water aquifer, the Teays River aquifer, in the the entire region!

Leaking from the waste site would reak radioactive fallout for countless people, future generations, the delicate environment, and ultimately make the Teays aquifer undrinkable.

Please help us STOP the on-site waste disposal facility by petitioning the Assistant Secretary for Environmental Management, Anne Marie White. She manages the environmental office that is in charge of cleaning up after the horrendous nuclear legacy.

We must ask her to halt this decision made my the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, and we must seek much more environmentally sound solutions that will protect us, not kill us.



Jeff Walburn, Chick Lawson, Dr. David Manuta and Paul Brogdon share over 3 hours of criminal investigations into the Department of Energy, Lockheed Martin, the Department of Labor, NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health), USEC (United States Enrichment Corporation), OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), CDC (Center for Disease Control), NRC (Nuclear Regulatory Commission), EEIOC (Energy Employee Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act), and numerous other government agencies contributing to an ongoing cover-up at Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant in Piketon, OH (Nuclear Enrichment Plant). Records were destroyed and falsified, perjury, racketeering and many other criminal acts have been recorded with the documents to back them up.

Huntington Pilot Plant

Also Known As: Reduction Pilot Plant
State: West Virginia
Location: Huntington
Time Period: 1951-1963; 1978-1979
Facility Type: Department of Energy

Facility Description: The AEC built the Huntington Pilot Plant in 1951 to supply nickel powder for use in the Paducah and Portsmouth gaseous diffusion plants. One source of the nickel was scrap nickel which was contaminated with uranium. The plant was shutdown in 1963 and maintained in standby condition. It was demolished in 1978-1979.

CONTRACTOR: International Nickel Company (1951-1963)

The Reduction Pilot Plant is located on approximately 1.6 hectares of land, presently owned by Huntington Alloys, Inc. A general plan of the site as it appears today is shown in Figure 2. The only original structure remaining on the site is the compressor building. This building is of concrete block construction and consists of a large open storage area, change room facility, office area above the change room, and a small electrical craft training room (see Figure 3 Approximate floor areas of these building sections are 9000 ft 4. (81.8 m2), 875 ft2 (79.5 m2) 875 ft2 (79.5 m’), and 300 ft2 (37.3 m2) respectively. Items of large mechanical equipment are stored on racks in the open area and training classes are being conducted in the small room at the northwest corner of the building; other areas of the building are not in use. A concrete pad, which was the floor of the former process building, remains on the north side of the compressor building and, at the time of this survey, a large pile of chromate ore occupied approximately 31.8 x12 of this pad. Large pieces of scrap metal and construction equipment are stored at the north edge of the property.

Huntington Pilot Plant is listed as an Atomic Weapons Employer (AWE) site and as a Department of Energy (DOE) site under the EEOICPA.

As of 03/15/2015, the total compensation paid under Parts B and E of the EEOICPA, including medical compensation, for workers suffering from the effects of having worked at Huntington Pilot Plant is $6,649,813.

Huntington Pilot Plant Workers:
If you or your parent worked at this or any other AWE facility and became ill, you may be entitled to compensation of up to $400K plus medical benefits from the US Department of Labor. Call EEOICPA Counsel Hugh Stephens at 1-855-EEOICPA (336-4272) or fill out the form to the right, whether or not you have already filed a claim and even if your claim has been accepted or denied.
