We are pleased to launch the newly completed Virtual Symposium for your viewing enjoyment! The video presentations, Power point presentations, and project reports can serve as useful Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education tools for area schools, colleges, and universities and also provide valuable information to the public at large about applied research projects conducted at U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) facilities in Ohio and Kentucky.

The Virtual Symposium is a joint collaboration between the Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs at Ohio University (OU) and the Kentucky Research Consortium for Energy and the Environment at the University of Kentucky (UK). These activities are funded by grants administered by DOE’s Office of Environmental Management Portsmouth/Paducah Project Office.

The Virtual Symposium provides online presentations and resources related to OU activities conducted at the DOE Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PORTS) site near Piketon, Ohio and UK activities conducted at the DOE Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PGDP) site near Paducah, Kentucky.

If you are interested hearing more about OU or UK grant activities and/or if you have any questions, feel free to contact:

Ohio University’s PORTSfuture project sponsored and helped to develop an Annual Site Environmental Report (ASER) Summary in collaboration with staff and students from Waverly High School during the 2015-2016 academic year. This ASER Summary was modeled after a similar report produced by DOE’s Oak Ridge Operations.

The ASER Summary was drawn from information found in the most recent DOE technical ASER released publically by PORTS and presentation materials developed by the high school staff and students throughout the school year. The goals when producing the ASER Summary were to educate regional high school students about activities and future career opportunities at the PORTS site and develop materials that will facilitate area residents learning more about DOE’s work at the PORTS site.

 
Ohio University is working with staff and students at Piketon High School this academic year to produce the next ASER Summary.

Vision: PORTSfuture video documentary
The Ohio University (OU) PORTSfuture project engaged hundreds of community members from Pike, Jackson, Ross, and Scioto counties in developing possible future-use scenarios for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) former Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PORTS) facility in Piketon, Ohio.

Community groups developed nine possible scenarios that were voted on by the public-at-large during the summer and fall of 2011. OU has summarized the results of the PORTSfuture project and the public preferences. This report has been submitted to the DOE Office of Environmental Management for their consideration as they make clean-up and risk reduction decisions about the site. The PORTSfuture process was documented by Ohio University in a recently released video documentary entitled “Vision”.
