WASHINGTON, D.C. – The preliminary agenda is now available for the 2016 National Cleanup Workshop, set to be held on Sept. 14-15, 2016, at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center in Alexandria, Va.

The workshop is being hosted by the Energy Communities Alliance, and cooperating organizations for the event include DOE and the Energy Facility Contractors Group.
The workshop will bring together senior DOE executives and site officials, industry executives, and other stakeholders to discuss EM's progress on the cleanup of the environmental legacy of the nation’s Manhattan Project and Cold War nuclear weapons program.
