This DOE-wide assessment identifies 299 environment, safety and health vulnerabilities at 13 sites. Excluding the classified mass of plutonium contained in nuclear weapon pits at the Pantex Plant in Texas, these sites hold 26 metric tons of plutonium. Most is located at Rocky Flats, Hanford, Savannah River, Argonne-West, Idaho, and Los Alamos. This report details the most significant vulnerabilities within each site and across all sites. Vulnerabilities were categorized and evaluated based on possible effects on workers, the public, and environment.
