My Last Days as a DOE Intern

Wow, this summer really has gone by fast!  I started the month of June as an intern for the Department of Energy Office of Legacy Management in Grand Junction, CO.  And now it is over already.  I was able to visit some really cool sites that are managed by DOE-LM and by DOE-EM.  All in all, I went to 10 different sites in 5 states.  Now that is a lot of traveling!  A lot of those were day trips though and were relatively close to GJ.  Some of the longer trips were to Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico.  Here is a complete list of my site visits in chronological order:

–Green River, UT

–Grand Junction Disposal Cell

–Central Nevada Test Area

–Shoal Site, NV

–Monticello, UT

–Rifle, CO

–Uranium Leasing Program Sites

–Shiprock, NM

–Monument Valley, AZ

–Moab, UT

Yesterday I completed my research project about compliance issues of uranium in the underlying aquifer at the Old Rifle Processing site and I gave a PowerPoint presentation to my mentor and most of the other federal staff here.  After my talk, my mentor asked me “Have you considered working for the federal government?”  🙂  That made me happy!  Now I must bid you adieu.  Good-bye!
