Inspection of Nuclear Safety At The Ashtabula Environmental Management Project
The Office of Inspector General, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), conducted an inspection to review issues related to nuclear safety at the Department’s Ashtabula Environmental Management Project (Ashtabula) in Ashtabula, Ohio. The Ashtabula Site is owned by the RMI Titanium Company (RMI) and is comprised of two facilities, the Extrusion Plant and the Metals Plant. Radioactive processing activities at the Extrusion Plant are regulated under a nuclear license issued by the Ohio Department of Health. The license only covers the Extrusion Plant and not the Metals Plant.
