The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Buffalo District is pleased to announce the award of a remedial investigation contract for the former Joslyn Manufacturing and Supply Company located in Fort Wayne, Indiana under the authority of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP). The remedial investigation contract was awarded to Plexus Scientific Corporation of Alexandria, Virginia.

The contractor will complete field work that entails the collection of soil and groundwater samples. In addition the contractor will complete radiological scans of the on-site buildings that were used during the historic Manhattan Engineer District and Atomic Energy Commission activities. This investigation is being completed to determine if this historic work adversely affected the site. The Corps of Engineers will work with the contractor to develop work plans before field work begins in 2020.

From 1943 to 1952, the Joslyn Manufacturing and Supply Company worked under government contract to temper, hot roll, quench, straighten, cool, grind, cut, and thread natural uranium billets into metal rods. The 23-acre Joslyn Site was entered into FUSRAP in 2009 and assigned to the Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District.
