Today, the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant is the nation's only uranium enrichment facility. Operated by USEC, Inc., the plant is a global supplier of enriched uranium for electricity production. The Shawnee Steam Plant, on the bank of the Ohio River, now provides electricity to customers throughout the region, as does the Joppa Steam Plant. Honeywell-Metropolis Works provides a variety of chemicals products for customers around the world. The U.S. Department of Energy, as owner of the plant, handles site environmental management and cleanup.

This mural commemorates the dedication of thousands who worked for a better plants, a stronger community and a higher quality of life.
