 Project Chariot, Alaska

 

Project Chariot siteProject Chariot

Project Chariot is a DOE facility for 1962 and 1993 so workers are eligible to file both Part B and Part E claims. 

Chariot was part of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission's Plowshare Program established to test peaceful uses of nuclear explosions. The objective of Project Chariot was to create a deep water harbor for the eventual shipment of coal, oil, and other natural resources thought to exist along this section of the Alaskan coast. In 1962, the U.S. Geologic Survey (USGS) conducted a study to determine the dispersal of radioactive products from a buried nuclear explosion. Later in 1962, before any nuclear explosives were detonated, Project Chariot was canceled. After this cancellation, the USGS excavated and buried the soil contaminated from its study. In 1993, the Department of Energy removed the contaminated soil and shipped it offsite for disposal.
