Madison County Site


During the late 1950s and early 1960s, the Dow Metal Products Division of Dow Chemical Company machined and shaped uranium metal and straightened uranium rods for the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). Radiological surveys conducted in 1989 identified uranium dust on interior overhead surfaces that exceeded DOE guidelines. The site was designated for remedial action under FUSRAP in 1992. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) completed remediation in 2000.
