Beyond a Nuclear Northwest: Assessing the Risks of Our Own Fukushima-Style Reactor at Hanford

February 28, 2013 - February 28, 2013
Vancouver, Washington

The Hanford Nuclear Reservation, North America’s most contaminated nuclear site, is home to the Pacific Northwest’s only operating nuclear reactor, the Columbia Generating Station. The reactor closely resembles Reactor 4 at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear site. Join us for a discussion of the facts concerning our region’s only nuclear power plant.

When: Thursday, February 28th beginning at 7 PM

Where: Clark County Public Utility District meeting room (1200 Fort Vancouver Way in Vancouver, WA)

Paul Gunter, renowned expert on nuclear issues, is currently focusing on the lessons learned from Fukushima including the safety risks of similar reactors. He will be speaking about the dilemma facing Clark Country residents because Clark PUD is a member of Energy NW, which owns the Columbia Generating Station. Paul will discuss the potential consequences of continuing to operate this nuclear power plant. Columbia Riverkeeper will also provide a brief presentation about the current status of cleanup at the Hanford site, and there will be time for questions from the audience.
