Remediation - Former Carnotite Reduction Company Site
All site activities (remediation and restoration) related to the remediation project have been completed. On April 20, 2023, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) terminated the radioactive material license for the site. All work activities were performed after IEMA reviewed and approved the construction plans and procedures and authorized AIS to start work by issuing a decommissioning license and written authorization to proceed with remediation activities (IEMA Authorization to Start Remediation).
We want to thank all residents for your input, patience, and cooperation during this remediation project.
