Laundry
Each day Fernald's on-site laundry washes all the protective cotton work-suits of its 1,000 employees to rid the clothing of uranium dust. Laundry water must be specially treated because of its uranium content. In December 1984, a special Oak Ridge Task Force reported to the U.S. Congress that the Fernald Feed Materials Production Center had, during its more than 30 years of process operations, released a total of 374,000 pounds of uranium dust into the air and water around the site, and that another 720, 000 pounds of uranium remained unaccounted for. 

Feed Materials Production Center, Fernald, Ohio. December 16, 1985.
