Our Nuclear Waste Program focuses on keeping Washington's residents and the environment safe from toxic and radioactive contamination at the Hanford site.

During World War II, the government wanted a large buffer zone around its nuclear production facilities for secrecy and public safety. The current site is about 580 square miles and most areas are still not accessible to the public.
