Sure you have the right year?

no one here remembers you being here at that time and none of our techs who left at that time were even qualified to do "real tech work", they weren't here long enough to get there quals.

Yeah I have the right year. I was out there emptying the "sluice" from the trench tank.  I still think my shoes are in the little sealand office out there.

Now I understand. You were @ West Valley with a company other than the actual RCT contractor. Maybe you were here with the Enercon(?) job. You weren't really exposed to the politics or the day to day at this job site.

 No   I was not embroiled or had to suffer through the politics, but I did listen to them.   I was fortunate to not have to worry about that sinde we were in our own little world.

Looking to find out current state at West Valley.  I have heard a couple of the contractors are getting replaced and just wondering what is going on.

So, what is the West Valley story? When is SEC taking over? Is Cabrera staying there in any capacity? Who's got the inside scoop?

Heard there was a per diem shake-up starting at West Valley now. Any news? Guess what started at SRS is spreading throughout the DOE sites.

Maybe more power plant techs will go to DOE (due to the higher wages) and plenty o' DOE techs will go to the powerplants (to get diem) for the spring outages due to the per diem shake ups.  Wouldn't that be interesting?   :D

Do some research.  West Valley has some of the highest dose rates and contamination levels of any facility in the country.  You can sneeze and loose a building.  Try covering workers in PAPR'S and bubble suits. They also throw around the scheduling term " critical path " More than any outage I have ever been to.  It is all  $$$$$$.

Word on the street the attorney general is investigating Per Diem fraud at West Valley.  Along with unqualified senior rad techs and some problem with the integrity of the NRRPT.  Any scoop on this ?

There are issues abound at WV that boggle my mind everyday I show up.

I know the management team is excellent, I worked with them at Rocky Flats and Idaho. They know how to run a safe and effective project. It is a high rad/high contam job, bring your "A" game.
