INL Offering Magic Valley Residents Unique Tour.
If you have ever wanted to see the insides of the Idaho National Laboratory’s nuclear research facilities in eastern Idaho listen up! A bus will pick up Magic Valley participants around 8 a.m. Thursday, and return them around 6 p.m. According to the lab, Thursday’s tour is part of an INL outreach effort to have a dialogue and answer questions about INL's mission and the safety of INL facilities, the environment and the public. The tour will include the Experimental Breeder Reactor Atomic Museum, INL's one-of-a-kind Advanced Test Reactor and hot cells at the Materials and Fuels Complex. There will be ample opportunity to discuss cleanup activities, Snake River Plain geology and other topics that may interest participants. The tour is free, but participants will need to buy their own lunch at the cafeteria, be U.S. citizens and meet the other criteria outlined on the tour registration page. You have until Tuesday to register for the tour on the INL's website.
