SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif.-- ARS Aleut Remediation, LLC (Aleut), a recognized leader in environmental services, is proud to announce the award of a $5.5 million task order to undertake a vital project for the safe management and disposal of low-level radioactive waste (LLRW) and low-level radioactive objects (LLROs). This significant task order, granted under Aleut's Indefinite Delivery / Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Contract with the U.S. Army Joint Munitions Command (JMC), Safety and Risk Management Directorate, reinforces Aleut's commitment to environmental excellence and responsible waste management.
The project involves comprehensive waste profiling, meticulous packaging, secure shipment, and ultimate disposal of LLRW and LLROs generated from the Installation Restoration (IR) Site-10 Shoreline Slag Area (SSA) at the Naval Air Station – North Island (NASNI) in San Diego County, California.
