Removal of Material from Newfield Site Begins

On the evening of October 14, 2019, removal of radioactive materials, via railroad cars, from the Newfield site began. Removal of this material is in compliance with the Decommissioning Plan approved by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) in early 2017.

In preparation for the removal of material from the site for transport and disposal outside of New Jersey, Shieldalloy and its qualified contractors have been preparing and packaging material in appropriate transportation containers, have mobilized equipment and personnel necessary for loading the rail cars, and have filed Final Decommissioning Work Plans with the NJDEP for review and approval.
