Naval Reactor Facility in Idaho

The Center for Environmental Management of Military Lands (CEMML) and the Public Lands History Center (PLHC) are honored to be supporting Fluor Marine Propulsion and Naval Reactors, Idaho Branch Office to collect and curate oral histories as part of the Naval Reactors Facility Oral History Project. The project is supporting ongoing efforts to preserve the history of three prototype reactors at the Naval Reactors Facility in Idaho: the S1W, A1W, and S5G. These prototypes were the land-based precursors to the reactors deployed for use in the USS NautilusUSS Enterprise, and USS Narwhal

The project is inviting those who worked or trained on one or more of the prototypes at the Naval Reactors Facility (NRF) to share their stories and personal experience during in-person oral history events to be held in Idaho Falls, ID on July 18-20, 2022 and Pittsburgh, PA on August 9-10, 2022.
