Remediation and Closure of the Miamisburg Environmental Management Project
With the end of the cold war, the Miamisburg Environmental Management Project (MEMP), formerly known as the Mound Plant, was transferred by the Department of Energy (Department), from Defense Programs to Environmental Management. The emphasis at MEMP is now accelerated cleanup and transition of facilities and property to the local community. Congress requires the Department to request adequate funding to keep the project on schedule for closure by 2006 or earlier. Under these provisions, any savings resulting from the accelerated closure of the MEMP can be retained and used for cleanup activities at other Department closure sites.
