U.S.-Russia Plutonium Agreement Plaque

United States 1998

Though the Hanford, Washington nuclear reactor has been disabled since 1987, the site falls under the U.S.-Russian Plutonium Production Reactor Agreement (PPRA) of 1997. The Agreement requires that production of plutonium in both countries for use in nuclear weapons must completely cease, and also calls for reciprocal monitoring of U.S. and Russian reactors. The Department of Energy presented this plaque with a disabled zone temperature monitor control panel to Dr. Dan Fenstermacher and other members of the delegation after a monitoring visit to Hanford in 1998.
