About the Luckey Site

Luckey Site

Between 1949 and 1958, the Luckey Site was operated as a beryllium production facility by the Brush Beryllium Company (later Brush Wellman) under contract to the Atomic Energy Commission. In 1951, the site received approximately 1,000 tons of radioactively contaminated scrap steel, to be used in proposed magnesium production at the site. The Luckey Site was designated a Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP) site in 1992 due to extensive surface contamination from beryllium.

The USACE will begin communicating progress at the Luckey Site through the use of an easy-to-understand infographic.  The infographic will be updated weekly and contains basic information regarding the total volume of soils excavated, the total tons of waste disposed, the total number of waste shipments, the total volume of collected site water treated, and the percentage of completion for each phase of the project.  Additional details regarding how the treated water was used and the number of miles traveled for shipping waste are also shown.  The purpose of the infographic is to provide an overall update on the project progress by reporting the major items of interest.  The infographic can be viewed and downloaded from the USACE website under the Project Status Resource section below.
