Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) provides continuity of scientific and technical expertise to support environmental remediation and site stewardship decisions. PNNL enables critical cleanup decisions, leveraging research and knowledge from our government sponsors, including the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Offices of Science, Environmental Management, Nuclear Energy, and Fossil Energy, and the Department of Defense, industry customers, universities, and our fellow national laboratories. Our strategically focused research, analyses, and technological contributions provide crucial science-based and risk-informed solutions to environmental remediation and stewardship challenges that save the nation millions of dollars and reduce the risks and time frames for cleanup of legacy waste. PNNL is committed to restoring the environment for a cleaner future. Our support to DOE began by establishing the environmental monitoring programs for the DOE Hanford Site that protect critical water resources today. We also provided the technical foundations for initiating the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA) process at Hanford and have developed numerous technologies and approaches for remediation that are being implemented.
