Critical task evaluation support activities included chemical processing of radioactive materials, waste minimization, decontamination, handling of radioactive materials, RCRA and CERCLA compliance, regulatory and institutional support, and corrective actions.
With Fluor's leadership in project management, lead tasks for low-level mixed waste characterization, treatment, packaging, certification and shipping were contained in the Comprehensive Treatment and Management Plan (CTMP) developed in response to a Federal Facilities Compliance Agreement (FFCA). A CTMP Implementation Model was developed by Fluor to provide EG&G and DOE with a management tool for costing, scheduling, assigning responsibilities, and tracking compliance against FFCA milestones. The model covers alternative compliance paths for mixed wastes including waste treatment technologies, waste characterization and regulatory requirements, in addition to meeting disposal site waste acceptance criteria.
With extensive technical resources, Fluor responded quickly to project needs. Task support ranged from providing one consultant to staffing of over 100 engineers and designers in many specialties with only a week's notice. As an example, Fluor was responsible for enhancing and upgrading the safeguards and security for nuclear materials activities at the plant
Approximately 1,200 drawings in 250 design packages were produced and issued over a 10-week period. Technical authority and experienced project management streamlined the planning and control systems, design procedures and control systems, design procedures and quality control/quality assurance methods.
