 Kansas City Plant, Kansas City Missouri

 

kansas City PlantKansas City Plant

The Kansas City Plant is a DOE site from 1949 to the present so claimants are eligible to file both Part B and Part E claims.

The Kansas City Plant is located on 136 acres in Kansas City, Missouri, east of Troost Avenue between 95th Street and Santa Fe Trail. 

The Kansas City Plant was constructed in 1942 to build aircraft engines for the Navy. After World War II, it was used for storage. In 1949, the AEC asked the Bendix Corporation to take over part of the facility and it began manufacturing nonnuclear components for nuclear weapons. Electrical, electromechanical, mechanical, and plastic components are manufactured or procured by this facility.

In 1993, the Department of Energy officially designated the Kansas City Plant as the consolidated site for all nonnuclear components for nuclear weapons.

As of 1996, production activities at the site were still occurring and expected to continue indefinitely.

Throughout the course of its operations, the potential for beryllium exposure existed at this site, due to beryllium use, residual contamination, and decontamination activities.
