Production reactor disposal on the Hanford site

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

One of the many restoration challenges for the Hanford Site is the disposal of eight plutonium production reactors inactive since 1971. In order to minimize environmental and public health and safety impacts disposal alternatives were evaluated in an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Alternatives considered were no action, immediate one-piece removal, safe storage followed by deferred one- piece removal, safe storage followed by deferred dismantlement, and in-situ decommissioning. Evaluation of the EIS by the US Department of Energy resulted in the selection of the safe storage followed by one-piece removal alternative, which is discussed in this report.
