Washington Closure Hanford is a limited liability company owned by the URS Washington Division, Bechtel National and CH2M Hill. It was formed in 2005 to manage Hanford’s River Corridor Closure Project for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Richland Operations Office.

Hanford’s River Corridor is a 218-square-mile parcel of land bordering the Columbia River. Hanford’s nine plutonium production reactors were located here, as were fuel manufacturing, process development and laboratory facilities.

Washington Closure is responsible for demolishing 486 building, cleaning up 370 contaminated waste sites and burial grounds, placing in interim safe storage four of the nine surplus plutonium production reactors, and managing the Environmental Restoration Disposal Facility – where Hanford’s cleanup wastes are disposed.

"Washington Closure Hanford is responsible for safe, visible cleanup of the Hanford River Corridor and for ensuring a safety-conscious work environment for employees. The Concerns Council provides employees an independent mediation process to help resolve work place safety and health concerns. The Council's system results in positive issue resolution."
- Neil Brosee, President, Washington Closure Hanford
