The Division of Remediation identifies and investigates hazardous substance sites, then uses practical and effective remedies to stabilize, remediate, contain, monitor, and maintain these sites. These efforts minimize threats to public health, safety, and the environment.
Oak Ridge Reservation
Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation’s (TDEC) Division of Remediation Oak Ridge office monitors the Oak Ridge Reservation to ensure that there is no threat to public health and the environment from the federal Department of Energy (DOE) activities on the reservation. Division staff also oversee DOE’s cleanup of contamination resulting from decades of nuclear weapons production and other site missions.
