More tours scheduled at former Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant site

Registration is open for the first ever guided tours of the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant site, which have added new dates, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. 

The DOE says it has added more tours to the list released in March

Some of the participants in the inaugural tours that happened April 23 were former plant workers, the DOE says, like Eugene Waggoner, who is 95 years old and started working at the plant in 1952.  

“The scope of the project is amazing,” Waggoner is quoted as saying in a news release Thursday. Speaking about the deactivation and remediation work going on at the site, he says: “The tour was educational, and it was a pleasure to come back to see the building I worked in after all of these years.”  

The DOE says that, in addition to the added tours, additional seating has recently been added to all of the scheduled tours.
