Abstract : This report describes the systematic approach to decontaminating and decommissioning DRES Building 12, an obsolete structure containing underground lead-lined concrete vaults and a chemical laboratory facility. This building had been used since World War II for a variety of purposes such as the storage of radioactive and pesticide wastes, the synthesis of radioactive chemical warfare agents for research purposes and as a site for training Canadian forces personnel in nuclear, chemical and biological emergency response.
