FUSRAP stands for the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program, a program initiated in 1974 to identify, investigate and clean up or control sites that were part of the Nation's early atomic energy and weapons program. Activities at the sites that are eligible for FUSRAP were conducted by the Manhattan Engineer District (MED) or the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), both predecessors of the Department of Energy (DOE).
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was assigned management of FUSRAP by Congress in 1997. The Buffalo District is charged with managing the FUSRAP sites within the Great Lakes and Ohio River Division.
