Sound Project Management, Safe and Efficient Work Lead to Savings for More Recovery Act Cleanup

Sound management practices and safe, efficient work have led to cost savings and rapid progress in the Idaho site's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act projects. The efficiencies have freed up $12 million for additional Cold War cleanup.

That $12 million from the Recovery Act is being used to exhume targeted buried waste from a quarter-acre portion of a landfill called Pit 9 so it can be disposed permanently and safely.
