Nuclear weapons production and energy research activities generated large amounts of radioactive contamination and hazardous waste at commercial enterprises. As a result, contamination of soil, groundwater, and structures occurred at sites across the country, posing potential risks to human health and the environment. This book provides information about the safety and disposal of the waste products and the efforts to clean up the contamination.
