In 1986 and 1987, just at the cusp of public disclosure of these releases, the author was part of a team assigned the task of calculating the Social Impacts of siting a High Level Nuclear Waste Repository at Hanford. Of particular significance to this volume, from within the vast American military nuclear program, the Hanford Reservation is the site most often compared to the Mayak facility in Chelyabinsk (see Dalton et al., 1999; Edelstein & Tysiachniouk, this volume; Marshall, 1990b; Mironova et al., this volume). Both were the principal plutonium production sites within their respective contenders in the Cold War. For this reason, a return to this 20-year old research offers a fascinating point of comparison to the Mayak chapters.
