INL cleanup company gets 3-year contract extension
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) -- The company overseeing an environmental cleanup project at the Idaho National Laboratory has been given three more years to continue its work.
The U.S. Department of Energy has agreed to extend its contract with CH2M-WG Idaho LLC through September 2015. The Post Register reports the value of the new deal is $730 million.
The company -- also known as CWI -- has headed the so-called Idaho Cleanup Project since 2005. Energy Department officials say CWI has completed nearly all of its projects ahead of schedule and under budget.
CWI is responsible for treating and disposing radioactive waste, managing spent nuclear facilities and remediating waste buried at the lab decades ago.
Cleanup Project Manager Jim Cooper says it's in the public interest to keep CWI in its lead role.
