Abstract Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), one of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Sciences 10 national laboratories, provides innovative science and technology development in the areas of energy and the environment, fundamental and computational science, and national security. DOE's Pacific Northwest Site Office (PNSO) is responsible for oversight of PNNL at its Campus in Richland, Washington, as well as its facilities in Sequim, Seattle, and North Bonneville, Washington, and Corvallis and Portland, Oregon. This site environmental report provides a synopsis of ongoing environmental management performance and compliance activities conducted during 2012. The report addresses the operations occurring on the PNNL Campus in Richland, Washington, which includes PNNL Site facilities, Battelle LandRichland (Battelle privately owned land in Richland), Battelle-owned and -leased facilities, and DOE Office of Science-owned land and exclusive-use facilities. Environmental activities at other locations are also included if they are under PNNL's responsibility (e.g., a permitted waste storage and treatment unit on the Hanford Site). The report also includes environmental information regarding the PNNL Marine Sciences Laboratory (MSL) and Battelle LandSequim (Battelle privately owned land located near Sequim, Washington). It includes a description of the location and background for each facility; addresses compliance with all applicable DOE, federal, state, and local regulations and site-specific permits; documents environmental monitoring efforts and status; presents potential radiation doses to staff and the public in the surrounding areas; and describes DOE-required data quality assurance methods used for data verification.
