Topic: Cleaning up the Legacy of the Manhattan Project in Washington

During the rush to develop the atomic bomb and the subsequent Cold War there were many great achievements at the Hanford Reservation in the state of Washington. Unfortunately, there now are many legacies that the current and future generations must clean up. During its active period there were nine production reactors that generated plutonium, five chemical processing canyons for extraction of plutonium, and many other support facilities on the 586 square mile site. This presentation will discuss the cleanup and demolition of these facilities, as well as what must be done to deal with the waste left from its earlier mission.
