Laboratory housed the analytical, metallurgical and chemical
process laboratories and was divided into restricted and
non-restricted areas. During Fernald's production era the
facility was used to verify the uranium product quality. The
laboratory used state of the art technology and various chemicals
during the preparation and determination of the analytical result.
More recently, the laboratory staff processed various samples
associated with cleanup. The D&D of the Lab consists of asbestos
abatement, building and equipment dismantlement, size reduction of
building material and the loading of roll-off boxes for transfer
to the On-Site Disposal Facility.
