Sixth Chapter of Hanford Story Released
The Department of Energy is releasing the sixth chapter of The Hanford Story video series to the public today. "Plutonium Finishing Plant" provides viewers with a look at the history and cleanup of the highest hazard facility remaining at the Hanford Site.
The plant produced nearly two-thirds of the nation's supply of plutonium for the nuclear weapons program and was once the center of the bulls-eye of security and secrecy at the site. After the last shipment of plutonium left the plant in 2009, the razor wire came down, and cleanup of the plant continued.
