The last State of the Site meetings were in spring 2011 and before that in 2008, but the Hanford Advisory Board recommended a year ago that Hanford officials resume the meetings.
The meetings provide a platform for the Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Washington State Department of Ecology to discuss progress and challenges at the Hanford nuclear reservation.
They also allow members of the public access to Hanford leaders to raise issues and ask questions.
