DOE missions at Paducah
includes environmental cleanup, waste management,
depleted uranium conversion, deactivation and decommissioning,
re-industrialization, and long-term stewardship.
Although the plant is leased and operated by USEC,
environmental restoration and related waste management
activities associated with past practices will be
conducted by DOE. Future plant shut down and cleanup
activities will be the responsibility of USEC.
