In response to an article in the Spokane Spokesman Review in September 1985, the DOE announced it would declassify environmental records and, in February 1986, released 19,000 pages of previously unavailable historical documents about Hanford's operations. Trial juries were sympathetic to the claims of the landowners and the payments awarded were well in excess of the government appraisals.

There were only seven black people in Richland in 1950; this increased to 189 by 1960, when they accounted for 1. Although the reactors could be shut down in two-and-a-half seconds, they would still generate heat due to the decay of fission products. Construction was expedited by locating them on the sites of existing villages to take advantage of the buildings, roads and utility infrastructure already in place.
