 Latty Avenue Properties, Hazelwood, Missouri

 

Latty AvenueLatty Avenue Properties

Latty Avenue is both an AWE and a DOE site so claimants are eligible to file Part B claims for 1967-1983 and 1987-October 2009 and Part B and Part E claims for 1984-1986.

Latty Avenue is located about half a mile north of the St. Louis airport and was used to  receive, store and process uranium residues for the AEC. 

The Mallinckrodt Chemical Company conducted uranium milling and refining operations under contracts with the Manhattan Engineer District and the Atomic Energy Commission at the St. Louis Downtown Site in Missouri. Mallinckrodt transported process residues to the St. Louis Airport Site (also in Missouri) for storage until the Commercial Discount Corporation of Chicago purchased them in 1967; Commercial Discount transported the residues to the Latty Avenue Properties for storage and processing. This material was sold to the Cotter Corporation in 1969 and was dried and shipped to their facilities in Canon City, Colorado. By 1974, most of the material had been sold and removed from the Latty Avenue Properties, leaving only residual contamination.

The 1984-1986 work was performed under the Bechtel National Inc. (BNI) environmental remediation umbrella contract for the DOE.

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.
