Nearly 2,000 workers
on the PORTS D&D Project in Piketon, Ohio have been
riding a rollercoaster of uncertainty for the past
few years as the Department of Energy (DOE), Congress
and the President make budget decisions that have
a huge impact on the kitchen tables throughout this
Over the past year
site personnel, business owners, community leaders
and union leadership have joined together to ask
the DOE and the Ohio Congressional Delegation to
fully fund the accelerated clean-up of the site
promoting reindustrialization and they have responded!
We understand there
are many decision makers who are not from southern
Ohio or familiar with our community. It is because
of this reason we have gathered business and civic
leaders within our community to tell our story in
hopes to reach hearts and minds the next time budget
decisions are made in Washington D.C.
We are proud of
our community and proud of the work happening at
the PORTS D&D Project!
