List of civilian nuclear sites exposed

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

Steven Aftergood of the Federation of American Scientists removed a link Thursday to a catalog he had downloaded of hundreds of civilian nuclear sites in the United States.

The information included 17 pages of activities at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Aftergood found the document on the Government Printing Office website and on Monday published a link to a copy from his blog, Secrecy News.

The file was replaced Thursday afternoon with the notice, “This document is no longer available on the FAS web site,” apparently in response to mounting concerns about an inadvertent release of information.

The compilation was intended for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), to provide a full picture of the nation’s civilian nuclear work, including mines, fuel fabrication and enrichment plants, nuclear waste sites, and locations where nuclear material is or could be present.

For LANL, there is a list of programs, classified by nuclear fuel cycle, which includes reactors, nuclear fuel fabrication and nuclear fuel reprocessing. The form contains a brief summary of each program and specifies a laboratory area, building and room for an address.
