25 years ago: KU confirms new plans for old reactor facility

June 11, 2012


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for June 11, 1987:

  • Kansas University officials yesterday had confirmed tentative plans for using a section of the inactive nuclear reactor building on campus for a hazardous waste storage facility. Plans for the building, on West 15th Street across from the Jayhawker Towers apartments, still needed approval from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. In what a Journal-World article called a "somewhat secretive procedure," fuel from the reactor had been removed on Jan. 28 and Feb. 2, 1986, and had been shipped to a reprocessing plant in South Carolina.
  • The Kaw Valley Quilters Guild was celebrating their 10th anniversary with "QuilTennial," a quilt show and celebration featuring works by charter members. The show was located at the Elizabeth M. Watkins Community Museum and was open to the public.
