The groundwater collection and treatment system at OU-2 was deconstructed after the site reached regulatory closure. System deconstruction, as opposed to demolition, maximized the amount of material suitable for recycling. Of the total 90.2 tons of material associated with the treatment system, 7.17 tons of steel and 82.59 tons of aggregate were recycled (recycling rate of 99 percent material by weight).
