World War I Incinerator Demolished

September 2004

The old Incinerator Facility, Building 428, was demolished under the Department of Energy's Excess Facilities Project. The Incinerator was constructed in 1943 and was located at the Former Hazardous Waste Management Facility (FHWMF). From 1947, it served first as an incinerator and later (1969 to 2002), was used for storage. The associated Ash Pits, where incinerator slag was dumped, had been cleaned up and capped in June 2003.
