The Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR) (USDOE) site is an inactive uranium recovery landfill in Oak Ridge, Anderson County, Tennessee. The United Nuclear Corporation (UNC) disposal site, which comprises Operable Unit 2 (OU2), is one of sever hundred waste disposal sites or areas of contamination at the ORR site requiring Superfund remedial action. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses the drummed soil, sludge, and debris to prevent future ground water contamination. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sludge, and debris are nitrite, an inorganic; and strontium-90, a radioactive material. The selected remedial action for the site includes clearing and grubbing sparse vegetation; placing a multi-layer cover over the drums, soil, sludge, and debris; revegetating the area and backfilling over the UNC waste with additional soil; and monitoring ground water.
