Hanford workers wear air-cooled suits for work at the Plutonium Finishing Plant in areas where there are high amounts of airborne radioactive contaminants. The Department of Energy has checked for radiation contamination in three states after potentially contaminated equipment left Hanford.

  • 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.
