NorthStar was selected to decontaminate and decommission (D&D) the University of Illinois’ Mark II reactor and nuclear reactor laboratory. NorthStar dismantled, removed, and packaged the reactor, systems, and structures and decontaminated and removed radiologically contaminated surfaces, components, and debris with unrestricted site release in accordance with 10 CFR 20. The reactor was placed in “safe storage” mode in 1998, when its 30-year operating license expired. NorthStar was engaged under a prompt DECON appraoch to complete the decommissioning and free release of the site.
The Final Status Survey (FSS) Report was submitted to the NRC on October 9, 2012. Facility Operating License No. R-115 was terminated on January 17, 2013.
