 Are things better today ? I heard a report about some different( outside ) groups  making things really hard for the people doing the work.


 What I mean by outside groups are people who where hired to do differnt no rad work and have taken it upon themselvs to criticize the rad groups.

Things are still somber here today, expect it to be this way for a few days yet. There is some oversite here but dont know what you mean by outside groups.

The layoff seemed to be one-sided.  Maybe if MWH would reduce their management load things would improve.

It has been a while since I posted anything here but the events of the last few days warrant a reply.

Wednesday was really a shock to all of us. And I wish everyone luck.
In our travels in this industry we have met and worked with some really great people and the people at the “Brook” are no different. We all have/had a job to perform and we performed it to the best of our ability (at least for those of us who have done this before).
The management team has not made our jobs easy over the course of the project, but every project has its ups and downs this place is no different.

For those of who stayed this round, we are unsure what is going to happen in the next six weeks. We are going through all the building and removing all the equipment and loading them up into sea-land boxes. As many of you are familiar with the rumor mill here, come April we may all be looking for jobs when they lock the gate and say go home. It is a waiting game right now to see which way the cookie will crumble.

As for who is left, not many. The place is a ghost town.  :'(
There are 5 Toltest workers left, 5 FSS (including Randy Fowler) which puts us to a total of 19 Bartlett people including supervisors and engineers. There has never been any lead tech’s for Rad Op’s. Mota (the D&D workers) where cut by 30 or more people so I think there is about that many left again including supervisors.

I wish everyone luck, both those who were let go and those of us who stayed. This is a small world in which we operate and I hope to see you again down the road.

Wednesday was a very difficult day.  Some hard decisions were made.  Ihope it's a long time before I see something like that again.

I liked Harry dude. please do not assume,
Bill kirby was the best to work with very good guy. as will as some of the toltest guys I had a lot of fun at the site. and took a lot to the bank. life was good.
I found out insdie stuff a few weeks ago thngs were in the Mill to shut down. a lot of different items going on on the other side of the fence that will never be really be found out untill its to late. like all jobs they come to and end . there is always somehting better out there. you have to go look for it. or make the best of where you are at.

For the time being work will continue on a reduced work scope through November.  After that it all depends on funding.

Well, I am sorry things are rough out there right now, but projects come to a close.  I have to say that 90% of the folks I worked with were great!  Harry and Bill Kirby were/are real strong supervisors and deserve a bit of gratitude to have put up with some of the stuff they have.

I hope ya'll find jobs soon or have stuff lined up shortly.

Plum Brook is in a stae of flux right now.  It's a wait and see where the dust settles over the next two months.
By the way, Plum Brook is in Region III not Region II.

Joe left in Jnauary or early February.  The project is being pretty much closed out for now.  The prime and the subs will all be gone by October 1.

Latest news from Plum Brook is that they have de-mobed everyone except Argonne and NASA folks.  A few accountant types may still be there as well as the Corps for contract close-out.  No idea as of yet as to what the path forward is.

Not quite.  Soil remediation will continue for a few more weeks along with shipping.  Pump out and characterization of the CRA.
We are beggining to close out paperwork and make lists of what's to be turned over to the federal sector.  Bodies will start leaving probably about mid August and trickle down until about October.
What a happy place to be! :D
