West Valley Demonstration Project


The West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) is an environmental remediation project at the site of a former commercial nuclear fuel reprocessing center located about 40 miles south of Buffalo, New York. CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley, LLC (CHBWV) was selected by the U.S. Department of Energy to conduct Phase I Decommissioning activities at the WVDP under a 8.6-year, $461.4 million contract that began in August 2011.  Since taking over control of the site, the CH2MHILL BWXT Team has been leading cleanup and facility demolition activities and is actively engaged in removing radioactive waste, contaminated equipment and obsolete structures from the 200-acre site.


"The CHBWV Team is committed to our mission at the WVDP. CHBWV's management team and our skilled workforce strive to deliver results that matter to our customers and taxpayers. Workplace safety, active community involvement, and responsible environmental stewardship are among our top priorities."
