Subject: [CPEO-MEF] PRESERVATION: Hanford's (WA) B Reactor
Study dismisses Hanford B Reactor for national park

As printed in Tacoma News-Tribune

HANFORD - A draft National Park Service study on preserving Hanford's historic B Reactor looks at several options but dismisses the possibility of making the reactor directly part of the national park system.

Only Los Alamos, N.M., is being considered to be named a Manhattan Project National Historical Park.

However, most of the five options being considered for Hanford would offer some possible park service role to provide technical assistance or educational programs for B Reactor.

Most of the options for B Reactor would rely heavily on local groups or other nonprofit agencies to preserve the reactor as a museum, develop and maintain exhibits and coordinate public visits. All options likely would require fundraising to keep the reactor open to the public.
