In the late 1940's, Dayton Unit I was utilized by Monsanto Chemical Company to support the nation's early atomic energy program, under contract by the Manhattan Engineering District and the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). The site was specifically used for research, chemical and quality control purposes.

Project Status

The Corps of Engineers completed a Preliminary Assessment/Site Inspection (PA/SI) of the Dayton I Site in September 2004. The PA/SI concluded the site does not pose a threat to human health or the environment and (based on it's support to the Nation's early atomic energy program) no further action under FUSRAP is warranted.
