Companies and research sites where radioactive and
toxic materials might have been processed secretly

This is a list of more than 550 sites where the Department of Energy either knows work was performed
for the nuclear weapons program or where questions have been raised about whether such work was
done.  At some of these sites, past investigations have concluded that no radioactive material was handled.
At other sites, past investigations have concluded that weapons work was not done.

However, there are questions about whether the conclusions reached at some sites during previous
investigations are accurate. DOE is reexamining records at many sites. Officials also say they are developing
a plan to address worker safety and environmental questions at many of the sites.

As it becomes available, more information will be posted on a public database that Energy Secretary Bill
Richardson has ordered be created on the DOE's Web site: The DOE provided no information
about Oklahoma and Vermont. The list was obtained by USA TODAY too late Wednesday to allow time to
alphabetize it by location. Sites are presented in the order they appear on the DOE's list:
