Northwind undertook a comprehensive lagoon treatment project for Westinghouse Electric Company's Columbia, SC Nuclear Fuel Fabrication Facility. The project focused on managing radiologically contaminated industrial sludge from uranium fuel production activities on site, while ensuring compliance with environmental and safety standards.

Scope of work involved the removal, classification, containerization, transportation, and disposal of 20,000 tons of radiologically contaminated sludge from productions lagoons at the facility. Sludge material was dredged from the lagoons, followed by de-watering using a filter press. The de-watered material was then sampled and categorized based on contamination levels before containerization and transport to licensed disposal facilities.
