University of Virginia
The University of Virginia is an AWE facility from 1942-1944 and 1970-1985 so workers are eligible to file for Part B claims.
The University of Virginia was involved with centrifuge technology prior to the existence of the Manhattan Engineer District (MED). Once established, the MED was interested in this technology and records show that the University of Virginia received UF6 from Harshaw Chemical Company in various shipments as part of the MED’s efforts to explore the use of this technology for the production of UF6 in nuclear weapons. The MED ultimately did not choose this method of uranium production for the development of the bomb and work on centrifuges temporarily ceased at the University of Virginia by the end of 1944. The centrifuge work was re-initiated in the mid-1950 but this latter work did not involve the production of nuclear material for use in an atomic weapon.
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.
