The contamination reduction zone has been moved to Building D and work will continue in Building D and E. See NTCRA Progress for more snow photos.
High Hazard Work continued during December 2014 and January 2015. Decontamination and clean-out progressed, especially in the former Hydrofluoric Acid area as shown. To see more photos of progress, go to NTCRA Progress.
