Trench 94 ( upper left ), Hanford Site, Washington, 1994. Hull sections containing defueled reactor compartments of decommissioned nuclear submarines are put in disposal trenches. Once full, the trench will be filled with dirt and buried. The compartments are expected to retain their integrity for more than 600 years.
Sealed reactor compartments are shipped by barge out of Puget Sound Naval Base down the coast and along the Columbia River to the port of Benton. There the radioactively contaminated hull sections are transferred to special multi-wheeled high load trailers for transport to the Hanford Reseration in Washinton State. Pictured abpve is the burial ground for spent fuel of 77 nuclear submarines as of 3/2003. The USS James Monroe reactor compartment is #16, fourth row from the bottom and second from the left.
