Seymour Specialty Wire
Seymour Specialty Wire is an AWE facility from 1962-1991 and a DOE facility from 1992-1993.
From 1962 to 1964, the Bridgeport Brass Company performed contract work at the Seymour site for the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). This work involved developing an extrusion process for natural uranium metal. After 1964, the work was consolidated at the Reactive Metals site in Ohio. Operation of the Seymour site was later taken over by employees and the facility eventually became the Seymour Specialty Wire Company.
Although this site was designated as part of the Formerly Utilized Site Remediation Action Program (FUSRAP) in 1985, remediation only took place during 1992 and 1993. This work was performed under the Bechtel National Inc. umbrella contract or DOE site environmental remediation.
During the period of residual contamination, as designated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and as noted in the dates above, employees of subsequent owners and operators of this facility are also covered under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act.
DOE's Legacy Management considered Seymour for FUSRAP.
