United for a Safe Future
The Scioto Valley-Piketon Area Council of Governments (SVPA COG) is a partnership between various entities to organize our community around the safe clean-up of the former Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PORTS/Atomic or A-Plant) in Piketon.
Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant
The PORTS facility was a critical component of the United States nuclear arsenal during the Cold War, and because of that service to the nation, our region has earned the support of our government in safely cleaning up the facility and in redeveloping the site to create jobs and opportunities in our community.
