UC Berkeley Lab plans to demolish Bevatron:
Tens of thousands of tons of radioactive debris to be hauled through streets of Berkeley.


City of Berkeley is a Nuclear-Free Zone An alternative to demolition and removal would be to allow the Bevatron and its contamination to remain onsite in relative containment. Onsite containment will allow the radioactivity to decay in place and not to be hauled away to other communities. The Bevatron is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places for the research in particle physics, which resulted in four Nobel Prizes.
