Water discovery creates safety scare at K-25 site
OAK RIDGE - A surprising amount of water was found in old uranium-processing equipment at the K-25 site, creating a nuclear safety scare in early December and temporarily halting work in part of the World War II-era facility.
"The water in the process system was a condition that had not previously been seen in the facility," said Dennis Hill, of Bechtel Jacobs Co., the U.S. Department of Energy's cleanup contractor in Oak Ridge.
