Brookhaven scientists conduct research in the physical, biomedical, and environmental sciences, and in energy technology and national security. The Laboratory is among the five largest high-technology employers on Long Island. More...
Natural resources: the Laboratory's 5,250 acre campus, part of Long Island's Central Pine Barrens, is host to 230 plant species, 15 animal species and 85 species of birds.
Site cleanup: past operations and research at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) dating back to the 1940s have resulted in localized soil and groundwater contamination. In 1989, due to this contamination, BNL was placed on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s National Priorities List.
The Lab and Department of Energy have made significant progress toward improving environmental operations and cleaning up the Lab site since contamination was first discovered in the mid-1980s. The Lab has also developed extensive monitoring and environmental management programs to help prevent future problems.
