Learn how this leader cleaned up Rocky Flats in record time, at record-saving costs, and with aggressive environmental standards.

Nancy Tuor served in numerous senior level executive positions over her 32-year career with CH2M HILL, most notably leading the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Facility Accelerated Closure Project in Golden, Colorado, the world's largest nuclear environmental clean-up program. From the 1950s through the 1980s, Rocky Flats produced 70,000 plutonium triggers for the U.S. nuclear arsenal. The U.S. Department of Energy thought it would take 70 years and cost $36 billion to clean it up. Ms. Tuor and her team did it in 10 years for $7 billion.
