Work Safe, Make a Difference, and Be a Part of History with the Inner Area End States Team!
At Central Plateau Cleanup Company (CPCCo), located in Richland, Washington, we are working to provide a sustainable future for the historic Hanford area through the protection of the Columbia River and the remediation of the Central Plateau. To achieve our mission, we need exceptionally talented, innovative, and driven people to help us reduce risks on the Hanford Site by removing some of the most hazardous waste streams and facilities in the Department of Energy (DOE) complex. If you would like to work with a highly skilled workforce to achieve unique and challenging goals that critically impact our environment and community, this is your chance to be a part of our legacy!

CPCCo will instill a closure mindset and deliver headline-worthy changes throughout the contract, beginning with gaining DOEand regulator alignment on the ultimate vision, refocusing the site culture with a bias toward action, transforming the skyline, reducing site risk and liability, and shrinking overall lifecycle costs and schedule. Our Hanford vision looks beyond this 10-year contract to an integrated site lifecycle approach that safely achieves meaningful near-term goals and reduces risk, while accelerating the overall remediation schedule and minimizing lifecycle costs.
Underpinning this vision and a critical element of our management approach is the Plateau Risk Elimination Program (PREP), our dynamic modeling system proven both in DOE at Idaho and globally at Sellafield. PREP was fine-tuned for Hanford to time-phase activities and will continue optimizing the schedule during execution. Our vision, supported by the PREP model, shows what is achievable within the contract period. We will partner with DOE to finalize an accelerated cleanup plan, reduce long-term liability, and make the Master IDIQ contract a vehicle for success. CPCCo is the perfect partner for this missio...n, bringing eminently qualified key personnel and lessons learned from 179 years of experience across the DOE complex and industry.
