Nuclear Waste Program

Keeping people and the environment safe from the dangers of mixed radioactive and chemically hazardous waste

  • Overseeing the U.S. Department of Energy's Hanford cleanup activities
  • Regulating mixed wastes at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard complex
  • Regulating commercial nuclear facilities in the Tri-Cities area
