With the support of Advanced Technologies and Laboratories (ATL) International, Inc., "Construction on the final cap of the Maxey Flats nuclear disposal site in Fleming County has been substantially completed. According to Scott Wilburn, who works with the Kentucky Environmental Cabinet, "substantial completion" is a term used when a site has been completed, but a few minor details remain. Wilburn said there will be a ceremony some time in the spring to mark the official completion of the project. Those visiting the site can see a difference. The cap and geo-synthetic liners are now covered with grass and vegetation. "Most people are surprised when they come out here and see how clean it is," Jeff Webb said. Webb also works with the Kentucky Environmental Cabinet. "We have grass, vegetation and wildlife."
