The Energy Communities Alliance, in cooperation with EM and the Energy Facility Contractors Group, is set to hold the fourth National Cleanup Workshop on Sept. 12-13, 2018, at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center in Alexandria, Va.

The workshop will bring together senior DOE executives and site officials, industry executives, and other stakeholders to discuss EM’s progress on the cleanup of the environmental legacy of the nation’s Manhattan Project and Cold War nuclear weapons program.
