The Hanford Site environmental report is prepared annu-
ally for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in accor-
dance with the requirements in DOE Manual 231.1-1A,
"Environment, Safety, and Health Reporting Manual," and
DOE Order 231.1A, "Environment, Safety, and Health
Reporting." The report provides an overview of activities
at the Hanford Site; demonstrates the status of the site's
compliance with applicable federal, state, and local environ-
mental laws and regulations, permits, executive orders, and
DOE policies and directives; and summarizes environmental
data that characterize site environmental management
performance. The report also highlights significant envi-
ronmental and public protection programs and efforts. Some
historical and early 2010 information is included where
appropriate. More detailed environmental compliance,
monitoring, and surveillance information is provided in
reports referenced in the text.
Although this report was primarily written to meet DOE
reporting requirements and guidelines, it is also intended
to provide a broad spectrum of environmental information
to DOE managers, the public, Native Americans, public
officials, regulatory agencies, Hanford Site contractors,
and elected officials. Appendix A lists helpful information
to aid the reader, including scientific notation, units of
measure, unit conversion information, and nomenclature.
