The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) extended the CH2M-WG Idaho LLC (CWI) contract for operations & maintenance (O&M) and decommissioning work at DOE’s Idaho National Laboratory in Idaho Falls, Idaho for approximately $730 million.

CWI’s current contract ends September 30, 2012. The contract has been extended until September 30, 2015. Under the extension, CWI will be responsible for treatment and disposal of radioactive waste, remediation of buried waste, safe management of spent nuclear fuel, disposing of nuclear materials, reactor and non-reactor nuclear facilities and completion of the sodium bearing waste processing.

The Idaho Cleanup Project contract was awarded to CWI in March 2005.
