Y-12 Plant
Introduction

The Y-12 National Security Complex (Y-12) is located on approximately 800 acres of the almost 35,000-acre Oak Ridge Reservation, about 20 miles west of Knoxville, Tennessee. The Y-12 Site Office provides federal oversite and manages the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Management and Operating (M&O) contract for Y-12. The facilities were originally constructed in 1943, as part of the Manhattan Project, for the production of enriched uranium. (source: NNSA FY2005 Congressional Budget Request)
