Rocky Flats Closure

Project Description

On October 13, 2005, Kaiser-Hill Company LLC, a joint venture of CH2M HILL and Kaiser Engineers, announced completion of the Rocky Flats Closure Project, a 10-year project to clean up one of the most contaminated sites in the U. S. Department of Energy’s nuclear weapons complex. The 6,200-acre site was the location of plutonium and uranium “trigger” production for the U.S. nuclear weapons arsenal from 1952 until 1989. More than 40 years of production left a legacy of contaminated buildings, soil and groundwater. A 1994 DOE study of plutonium vulnerabilities ranked two Rocky Flats buildings as the number one and number two most dangerous in the DOE complex.
