Y-12 Infiltration Costs Could Top $100 Million

July 29, 2013

The United States could ultimately spend more than $100 million responding to an illegal nuclear weapons plant entry by peace activists one year ago, issue experts told the Knoxville News Sentinel for a Saturday report.

The price tag would include costs from audits, worker education initiatives and other follow-up activities carried out at the Y-12 National Security Complex after three members of the group Transform Now Plowshares infiltrated the Tennessee site on July 28, 2012. The intruders cut through multiple fences to reach the exterior of the site's bomb-grade uranium storehouse, where they dumped blood, hung banners and wrote peace slogans on buildings prior to their arrest.

The site suffered another embarrassment last month, when an apparently lost driver slipped onto facility grounds with morning commuters.

 

On Sunday, a gun accident wounded two protective force personnel at the facility, the News Sentinel reported.
