Springdale, Pennsylvania, Site
Background—The Springdale, Pennsylvania, 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—The Springdale Site was a privately owned metal fabrication shop that provided uranium metal machining services to the Manhattan Engineer District the mid-1940s. As a result, interior concrete floor surfaces and soil under the concrete slab were contaminated with uranium.
In 1992, DOE designated the site for remediation under FUSRAP and remediated the contamination in 1994. DOE certified that the site complied with applicable cleanup criteria in September 1996, and released the property for unrestricted use.
Final Conditions—No supplemental limits or institutional controls are in effect at the 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 Springdale Site, view the fact sheet.
