Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant Stakeholder Vision Project Report

The KWRRI, through its partnership with the KRCEE, and the UK-SRC Research Translation Core that has brought together experts from Community-Based Participatory Communication and Structured Public Involvement to develop an innovative approach for community engagement in determining the future of Superfund sites. The KRCEE team has been charged by Kentucky's Congressional delegation and the United States Department of Energy with integrating public, regulatory, and technical community visions to produce a publicly approved Future State Vision Report for the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PGDP) National Priority List Superfund site. The methodology being implemented includes personal interviews, focus groups, and large community meetings, with individuals from disparate stakeholder groups engaged at each stage. The data gathered during the interview and focus group stages is informing the creation of sample scenario visualizations that will be discussed and scored during the community meeting stage. The project has resulted in a PGDP Future State Vision Document that, while not decisional, will be available to inform future US Department of Energy decisions related to the disposition of the PGDP after decommissioning. More detail about this exciting project can be found on the KRCEE. A copy of the Final Report can be found from the following link.
