Environmental programs at the NNSS address the environmental legacy from historic nuclear weapons-related activities, as well as ensuring the health and safety of workers, the public, and the environment at the Site. Environmental activities include:

  • environmental protection, compliance, and monitoring of the air, water, plants, animals, and cultural resources at the NNSS; and

  • corrective actions to address contaminated groundwater, facilities, and soils resulting from historic nuclear research, development, and testing at the NNSS and the Nevada Test and Training Range, which includes the Tonopah Test Range.
