Clean up complete for former RMI plant|
By SHELLEY TERRY Ashtabula Star-Beacon (OH) November 5, 2006
ASHTABULA TOWNSHIP -- Clean up is complete at the former RMI plant at 1601 E. 21st St., just east of Route 11, officials at Lata-Sharp Remediation Services and the Ohio Department of Health said Friday.
Since 1998, about $139 million was spent to clean up this seven-acre site. RMI owns 13 of 25 buildings and the Department of Energy owns the remaining 12.
The site supported titanium extrusion operations from 1962 to 1988 for the Department of Energy defense programs.
"There was radioactive contamination left behind," said Clyde Gaston, spokesman for Lata-Sharp. "We removed soil and buildings, but there's still a lot of work to finish up, including paperwork."
This is the Department of Energy's third cleanup this year in Ohio, according to James Rispoli, the Department of Energy's assistant secretary for environmental management.
