The Paducah Area Community Reuse Organization expects the U.S. Department of Energy to spend about $359 million on the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant cleanup for 2015.
PACRO Director Charlie Martin says $89 million left over from last year will roll over to join the 2015 allocation of $270 million dollars. He says this is higher than what DOE generally allocates annually to the PGDP cleanup, which is good for PACRO.
A Tennessee Valley Authority Board discussion on the future of the Shawnee Fossil Plant prompted a faction of Paducah officials to attend the meeting and issue comments. The comments involve the fate of 2 of 9 functioning units at the plant.
The director of the Paducah Area Community Reuse Organization, or PACRO, says negotiations are going well between the U.S. Department of Energy and General Electric-Hitachi Global Laser Enrichment for use of the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant site.
