  • Demolition under way at a historic, hazardous plutonium plant

    Heavy equipment is now conducting demolition on a building nicknamed after Harold McCluskey, who in an accident in 1976 received the highest ever recorded dose of radiation at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Hanford Site. During plutonium production at the “McCluskey Room” or the Americium Recovery Facility, radioactive americium was separated for other uses. The facility never resumed operations after the incident.

  • Workers take down Plutonium Reclamation Facility Canyon

    This video from November shows demolition of the north wall of the canyon, allowing heavy equipment to begin removing strong backs from the walls. Strong backs are brackets from which pencil-shaped processing tanks once hung. It also shows the array of dust suppression tools, each spraying water from a different angle to help control radiological contamination during demolition.
