history of the hanford site
History of the Hanford Site
  • Site established in 1942 as part of the Manhattan Project to produce plutonium
    • Nine reactors and five chemical separations facilities built and operated
  • Defense mission ended in the late 1980s
  • Environmental cleanup mission subsequently established through the Hanford Federal Facility Agreement and Consent Order (Tri-Party Agreement - TPA)
    • Department of Energy
    • Environmental Protection Agency Region X
    • Washington State Department of Ecology

current mission shrinking the footprint
Current Mission: Shrinking the Footprint
  • Footprint reduction of 45-60% by 2011 (Total reduction of 80-90% by 2015 leaving only the Central Plateau Inner Zone)
  • Work in four areas:
    • River Corridor (~210 sq. miles)
    • Central Plateau, Outer Zone(~65 sq. miles)
    • Central Plateau, Inner Zone(~10 sq. miles)
    • Hanford Reach National Monument (~300 sq. miles, including Arid Lands Ecology Reserve)
current activities
Current Activities
  • Central Plateau Cleanup
    • Solid Waste (LLW, MLLW, TRU, RH and CH)
    • Liquid Effluents
    • CERCLA waste sites (burial grounds, cribs)
    • Decommissioning and demolition of facilities
  • River Corridor Cleanup
    • Waste Site Remediation
    • Reactor decommissioning and entombing
  • Groundwater Program
    • Protecting the Columbia River
    • Treatment
    • Monitoring/Modeling
recovery act funding
Recovery Act Funding
  • DOE’s Office of River Protection and Richland Operations Office American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) apportionment totals $1.961 billion
    • Must be used by September 2011
  • Lives touched – 4,547. Includes jobs saved plus new hires. (CHPRC March 2010)
  • Outside Contracts – over $500M awarded

what s ahead
What’s Ahead
  • Planned completion of River Corridor by 2015
  • Planned completion of the Outer Zone by 2015
  • Site closure date extending beyond 2050
projected use of laboratories and tsdfs in fy 11 and fy 12
Projected use of Laboratories and TSDFs in FY 11 and FY 12
  • Continue use of DOECAP contracted laboratories
    • Represents about 20% of the site’s analytical workload
  • $1.3 million spent in FY 2010
  • Subcontract laboratory usage is expected to remain the same for FY’s 2011 and 2012
