Our Richland Operations Office (RL) and Office of River Protection (ORP) are responsible for managing and operating the 586-square mile Hanford Site in the Southeastern part of Washington state.
For more than forty years, reactors located at Hanford produced plutonium for America’s defense program. Today, these facilities and structures must be deactivated, decommissioned, decontaminated, and demolished. Only here can you be part of this type of environmental cleanup. These projects rely on almost 11,000 Hanford employees. You can you help oversee the cleanup of the Hanford site and do your part for our environment.
