Featured projects

Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA

Bechtel has implemented industry best practices in environmental management at Los Alamos National Laboratory, cleaning up the legacy of past lab operations and establishing a path forward for minimizing current waste on site. The program has safely shipped more than 113,000 cubic feet (3,200 cubic meters) of transuranic waste and is currently cleaning up hazardous or radioactive contaminants in the areas around the laboratory and town of Los Alamos where operations took place decades ago.

Three-Mile Island nuclear power plant, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA

Bechtel performed extensive cleanup and remediation after the accident at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant. We successfully lowered radioactivity levels to establish a stable and secure facility.

Hanford River Corridor Closure, Hanford, Washington, USA

Bechtel works on the team performing cleanup near the Columbia River at the DOE's Hanford Site in Washington state. We are safely cleaning up 550 waste sites and burial grounds, including liquid waste cribs and trenches, buried pipelines, and areas contaminated by leaks and spills.  We are operating the Bechtel-designed and -constructed Environmental Restoration Disposal Facility, designating, transporting, treating, and disposing of more than 8 million tons of contaminated materials from cleanup and closure operations.
