Background—The Fairfield, Ohio, Site was remediated under the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP). FUSRAP was established in 1974 to remediate sites where radioactive contamination remained from Manhattan Project and early U.S. Atomic Energy Commission operations.
History—In 1956, uranium metal was machined and shaped at the site for the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, contaminating interior building surfaces, drains, equipment, and soils.
The former owner removed some contamination in late 1956. DOE conducted additional remediation at the property under FUSRAP in 1994 and 1995. Supplemental limits were applied to uranium in the soil beneath the building floor slab. DOE certified that applicable cleanup criteria had been achieved and the site was released for unrestricted use in 1996.
Final Conditions—No institutional controls are in effect at the privately owned site, and DOE does not require on-site monitoring or surveillance. Office of Legacy Management activities consist of managing site records and responding to stakeholder inquiries. For more information about the Fairfield Site, view the
