Design And Construction Of Y-12 Outfall 200 Mercury Treatment Facility




Oak Ridge, Tennessee

As the managing partner of a Joint Venture, APTIM is providing design and construction of a mercury treatment facility at the Y-12 Outfall 200 Mercury Treatment Facility in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. In the 50s and 60s, Y-12 used 20+ million pounds of mercury, of which approximately 700,000 lbs was lost into the buildings, soils, groundwater, and sediments. The new mercury treatment facility will capture mercury that migrates from buildings and soils during major demolition. The facility is expected to reduce mercury concentrations in the water by 84%. The facility is designed to treat up to 3,000 gallons of water per minute and includes a 2-million-gallon storage tank to collect stormwater.
