Auxier & Associates, Inc.
Decontamination and Decommissioning Management

A major area of expertise at Auxier & Associates (A&A) is health physics support for nuclear facility decontamination and decommissioning (D&D). We have extensive practical experience in assessment of facilities and sites being decommissioned for programs of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Department of Energy (DOE), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and properties contaminated with NORM (naturally occurring radioactive material), mixed fission products, activation products, and TRU (transuranium isotopes).

A&A is familiar with the planning, operational, and regulatory aspects of environmental programs and responsible agencies. We have provided a range of service to clients including management of decommissioning activities, development of procedures and protocols to survey and remediate facilities, independent oversight of D&D projects, interpretation and presentation of survey results. A&A has provided operational health physics support during remediation, and have interacted closely with engineers, construction management, and regulatory agencies to promote efficient use of resources.


Capabilities:

Services available through Auxier & Associates include developing decommissioning plans, planning survey strategies, conducting radiological surveys for all phases of decommissioning, developing and managing remedial action programs, evaluation of waste management alternatives, and preparation of documentation to demonstrate effectiveness of the decontamination and decommissioning actions. Because we have managed or coordinated site remediation activities in multiple states we bring solid operational knowledge to the planning process. Throughout the process, we work closely with the client and the responsible regulatory agency to achieve a timely, cost effective, and technically acceptable outcome to the process.
