The Pacific Northwest is home to the United States' most contaminated place, the Hanford Nuclear Site. Join Gorge Owned and Columbia Riverkeeper for a panel discussion that will explore the history of Hanford's plutonium production, the contamination that persists as a result, and the importance of the last free-flowing stretch of the Columbia River known as the Hanford Reach. Dan Serres, Conservation Director at Columbia Riverkeeper, will speak about the Reach and moderate a panel including Dirk Dunning, a recently retired expert on Hanford at the Oregon Department of Energy, and Damon Motz-Storey, Clean Energy Organizer for Oregon and Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility, who will speak about the ongoing nuclear power generation at Hanford by the Columbia Generating Station.
