Since 1972, Argonne has monitored the environment of its Illinois site and each year issues public reports on its findings.
The Summary Site Environmental Report for Calendar Year 2013 summarizes the annual results of Argonne’s ongoing site environmental monitoring and surveillance program.
Seniors from Downers Grove South High School, in Illinois, helped to write the 2013 Summary Site Environmental Report.
Argonne strives to be a good neighbor and a responsible environmental steward. A number of Argonne programs care for the environment by continually monitoring and measuring contaminants on-site and by conscientiously tracking, collecting and properly disposing of the small amounts of chemical and radioactive waste that Argonne research generates.
