Du Pont Deepwater Works Du Pont Deepwater Works

Du Pont Deepwater is an AWE site for 1942-1995 and 1997-March 1, 2011 and a DOE site for 1996 so workers from the AWE years are eligible to file Part B claims and workers for 1996 are eligible to file both Part B and Part E claims.

In the 1940s, E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Company (DuPont) produced uranium products and conducted research on uranium hexafluoride. These activities were conducted first for the U.S. Office of Scientific Research and Development (OSRD), and later under contract to the Manhattan Engineer District (MED) and the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). DuPont also developed processes to convert uranium dioxide to uranium hexafluoride, and produced uranium oxide and uranium metal which was used to fuel the CP-1 reactor at the University of Chicago. After completion of these activities, the AEC conducted limited decontamination and released the site to DuPont for reuse. DuPont currently operates a chemical plant at this site.

Although DuPont Deepwater Works was designated as part of the Department of Energy's Formerly Utilized Site Remediation Action Program (FUSRAP) in 1980, the only year in which actual remediation was performed under contract to the DOE was 1996. There was decontamination performed in 1997, but this did not involve the Department of Energy.

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.
