The Hanford nuclear reservation’s Plutonium Finishing Plant is shown as it looked Dec. 15 when the demolition of the Plutonium Reclamation Facility was completed. Blue fixative was sprayed on the demolition site then to help keep radioactive contamination from being airborne.

  • 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.
