Idaho Liquid Waste Treatment Facility Benefiting From Mock-ups

Fluor Idaho and the Department of Energy Environmental Management (EM) Program’s use of replica components of a liquid waste treatment facility at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) Site has proven effective in preparing for the facility’s active operations.

Diversified Metals, an Idaho Falls-based metal fabrication shop, erected a mock-up to prepare radiation protection technicians and operators with Fluor Idaho, EM’s INL Site cleanup contractor, for radiological work once the Integrated Waste Treatment Unit (IWTU) is operating.

“Using this mock-up not only allows our teams to develop and perfect the procedures they’ll use once the facility is processing actual waste, it also helps the teams develop safety measures and build in radiological controls,” Fluor Idaho IWTU Project Safety Manager Allen Nellesen said.
