Nuclear talk tonight at Niagara University

A researcher and professor who studies radioactive contamination will speak at Niagara University tonight.

Nathalie A. Wall, assistant professor at Washington State University, will present "The Processing of High Activity Radioactive Materials" in a session sponsored by the Lake Ontario Ordnance Works Restoration Advisory Board.

Wall worked at the French Atomic Energy Commission, and has held post-doctoral appointments at Florida State University and Sandia National Laboratories, according the a press release from the LOOW advisory board.

The advisory board is a volunteer panel of area residents with technical expertise applicable to radiological and chemical contamination, like that found on the former ordnance works site in Lewiston and Porter, as well as the Niagara Falls Storage Site in Lewiston.

The session, which is supported by the University at Buffalo Larkin Chair of Chemistry, NU and the Lewiston-Porter Central School District, will be held from 7 to 9:30 p.m. in 127 Dunleavy Hall.

The advisory board held another public session in June featuring the former head of an advisory panel for an Ohio nuclear site. Read that story here.
