Soil Washing at the Ashtabula Environmental Management Project

The RMI Titanium Company's Earthline Technology Division (RMI) is the Department of Energy's (Department) environmental restoration contractor at the Ashtabula Environmental Management Project (AEMP) in Ashtabula, Ohio. RMI owns the Ashtabula property, formerly known as the RMI Extrusion Plant, where the firm processed uranium for the Department and its predecessor agencies. In March 1993, the Department awarded RMI a sole-source, costreimbursable contract to clean the extrusion plant and adjacent grounds to a level that permits release of the site for unrestricted use. The contract requires that RMI complete the project on or about March 31, 2003. The Department estimated the project would cost about $237 million to complete.
