Ask Our Managers

This second conversation will open with a brief presentation about Ecology's top Hanford managers. Following the presentation, we'll move into a live Q&A session with you, where we'll take your questions about our agency's role in Hanford Site cleanup.

Originally, Ask Our Managers was scheduled for June 29, but had to be rescheduled due to technical difficulties the day of the event. We hope you're able to join our rescheduled conversation!

The discussion will feature Nuclear Waste Program Manager David Bowen and Deputy Program Manager Stephanie Schleif, along with Ginger Wireman and Ryan Miller from the program's communications team.

What it's all about

We first announced these virtual events in late March, with the aim to help you better understand all things related to Hanford and its complex nuclear cleanup.

Beginning during World War II, Hanford produced plutonium for decades before shifting to a new mission in 1989 to clean up the massive amounts of waste and contamination that production left behind. 

These conversations will blend high-level easy-to-understand presentations and conversations with you about Hanford topics.

We're gearing these virtual discussions toward those unfamiliar with Hanford, those who want a refresher, or to expand existing knowledge about Hanford. We'll start each event with a short high-level presentation on that day's topic, followed by a live Q&A with those watching.

Have any questions or ideas for future conversations? Drop us a line, and we hope to see you virtually during our second livestream!
