Fort Greely

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

The Army Corps of Engineers intends to haul radioactive and hazardous materials from Fort Greely’s mothballed nuclear power plant to Fairbanks by truck, where it would be loaded onto railcars and transported to tidewater, then loaded onto barges and taken to nuclear-waste disposal sites in the Lower 48.

The Army Corps of Engineers has issued a document that outlines plans to decommission and dismantle Alaska’s first and only nuclear power plant – the old SM-1A at Fort Greely. The Corps has scheduled two meetings for next week to talk about the draft Environmental Assessment, and it’s encouraging the public to comment on it.

Fort Greely reduced its level of COVID-19 precautions today, because of fewer cases of COVID there and in the surrounding community and the ramping-up of vaccinations.
