Ohio University’s PORTSfuture project sponsored and helped develop an Annual Site Environmental Report (ASER) Summary in collaboration with staff and students from Waverly High School during the 2012-2013 academic year. This ASER Summary was modeled after a similar report produced by DOE’s Oak Ridge Operations.
The ASER Summary was drawn from information found in the most recent DOE technical ASER released publically by PORTS and presentation materials developed by the high school staff and students throughout the school year. The goals when producing the ASER Summary were to educate regional high school students about activities and future career opportunities at the PORTS site and develop materials that will facilitate area residents learning more about DOE’s work at the PORTS site.
Ohio University is working with staff and students at Eastern Local High School this academic year to produce the next ASER Summary.

HABITAT RESOURCE INVENTORY AND HABITAT SUITABILITY
MODELING REPORT AND MAPS
PORTSfuture is pleased to present the findings of the habitat task. These findings provide a characterization of the existing habitat in sufficient detail to allow assessment of the habitat qualities and values for a variety of flora and fauna indigenous to southern Ohio and to inform a range of land management and site, future-use conversations.
The report encompasses the PORTS site; excluding the central industrial facilities contained within Perimeter Road but including the immediately adjacent private lands outside of the PORTS DOE land ownership within one mile of Perimeter Road. The defined study area comprises approximately 5,235 acres.
