Hanford, Our River & You: Community Led State Of The Site Meeting

Hanford Challenge says
In 1943, the U.S. Government built the world’s first plutonium production nuclear reactor on the banks of the Columbia River in eastern Washington State. Then, they built eight more and generated 57 tons of plutonium and billions of gallons of waste. Every year, the government spends more than $2 billion of taxpayer dollars cleaning up this former military complex.

Come join public interest groups Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility, Hanford Challenge, Heart of America Northwest and Columbia Riverkeeper at this community-led State of the Hanford Site meeting.

This is your chance to learn about the latest challenges and advances in cleanup and discuss issues surrounding the nation’s most contaminated site. The meeting will include an open house, presentations and a Question & Answer session. The Department of Energy, Washington State’s Department of Ecology and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have been invited to join the discussion.

Open House: 9:30AM
Presentations: 10:00AM
Q&A Panel: 11:00AM
