Abstract

This paper describes the role of Community-Based Participatory Communication in a multiphase research project that will incorporate community values into a publicly approved Future State Vision Report for the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PGDP) National Priority List Superfund site and surrounding areas. The project, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (US DOE) and implemented by the Kentucky Research Consortium for Energy and the Environment (KRCEE) at the University of Kentucky, is charged with developing and executing a methodology that ensures that local communities are adequately involved in decisions that affect how the Superfund site will be remediated, utilized, and monitored following cessation of uranium enrichment activities at the plant. Specifically, this project is expected to ensure that future use goals for the site help advance local needs and values.
