Brochure title:
Support to Hanford Environmental Remediation and Long-Term Stewardship
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) provides continuity of scientific and technical expertise to support environmental remediation and site stewardship decisions at Hanford. Our partnership with the Hanford Site started with establishing the environmental monitoring programs that today protect critical water resources. PNNL provided the technical foundations for initiating the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA) process at Hanford and has developed numerous technologies and approaches for remediation that are being implemented. Building on these accomplishments, PNNL is well positioned to 1) support the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and site contractors in implementing the current baseline through technology maturation and technical guidance; and 2)develop new technology solutions and approaches through applied science to meet the challenges ahead, including defining and achieving risk-informed endpoints for active remediation. We are committed to addressing environmental issues with technically defensible solutions. As described in the following sections, PNNL stewards scientific and technical capabilities to provide four core competencies to support the DOE Office of Environmental Management (EM)mission at the Hanford Site: ¡¡Nature and Extent of Contamination ¡¡Remedial Design ¡¡Remedial Action ¡¡End States
