Idaho site marks 30 years of cleanup
When the Department of Energy, the state of Idaho, and the Environmental Protection Agency signed a federal facility agreement and consent order in December 1991, the agencies outlined a plan to investigate and clean up, if necessary, more than 500 individual waste areas within the 890-square-mile Idaho National Laboratory (INL) Site, which was established in 1949 to design, build, and test nuclear reactors.

It's Go Time: Creating Momentum Toward Transformational Change
Daniel ChurchmanUWC General Chair
Thank you for registering for our 2020 ANS Utility Working Conference Virtual Summit! We genuinely appreciate the support you and your organization have shown ANS during this unprecedented time. Nuclear waits for no one and nothing. Change is inevitable and we continue learning valuable lessons. No matter how we spin it, the theme of this year’s meeting is now more relevant than ever.
Cancelling this annual meeting was not an option as there are lessons to be learned and discussions to be had that simply cannot wait. Turning our in-person meeting into a one-day summit, we tightened up programming and look forward to bringing some of the best and the brightest together for lively discussions, panel sessions, and presentations.
We look forward to seeing you next year at Marco Island!
