In 1942, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers chose Hanford as the location for reactor, chemical separation, and related facilities for producing and purifying plutonium. A small farming and ranching community along the Columbia river, covering the towns of Richland, Hanford, and White Bluffs, was designated as site W of the Manhattan Project, the code name for the government's development of atomic and the nuclear weapons.. The land known as the Hanford Engineering Works was located in a sparsely populated area close to the Bonneville and Grand Coulee dams.
