Dana signDana Heavy Water Plant

Dana Heavy Water is a DOE facility from 1943-May 1957 so workers are eligible to file for Part B and Part E claims.

Most of the heavy water for the U.S. nuclear weapons programs was made at two sites: the Dana Heavy Water Plant and the Savannah River Heavy Water Plant. The Dana Heavy Water Plant was designed and built by the Girdler Corporation (under direction from E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company) and operated by E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company. The plant, located in Newport, Indiana, operated until May 1957, and remained on standby until July 1959. The site used a combination of hydrogen sulfide-water chemical exchange, water distillation, and electrolysis processes to make heavy water.
