What is Rocky Flats?
Rocky Flats is a former nuclear weapons plant 16 miles North West of Denver that operated from 1952-1989. The plant manufactured 70,000 plutonium bomb triggers for the U.S. nuclear weapons arsenal.
This website is a resource for comprehensive information regarding Rocky Flats. Rocky Flats Nuclear Guardianship includes a 40 year history of public engagement beginning with the Rocky Flats Truth Force in 1978.
Why Should We Care About Rocky Flats?
Rocky Flats is an extremely contaminated Superfund site that was "cleaned up" in 2006 and was turned into a national Wildlife Refuge in 2018. Since the clean-up, there has been a lack of transparency and accountability for what is happening at Rocky Flats.
The Nuclear Guardianship Ethic is proposed as an evolving expression of values to guide decision-making on the management of radioactive materials.
