Idaho Nuclear Site
Idaho National Engineering Laboratory is located in the eastern desert of Idaho on a site covering almost 900 square miles. The area where the lab is located was first used to test artillery, then eventually was designated the National Reactor Testing Station. Over the course of its operation, the site has been home to more than 50 nuclear reactors. One of the most notable accomplishments of the lab was the development of the nuclear-powered submarine.
The Idaho National Engineering Laboratory suffered from many of the same flaws as other early nuclear facilities. Safety was not as good as it needed to be for the protection of those who worked there. The EEOICPA was created for workers across the country who developed cancer and diseases associated with working in nuclear facilities. It provides compensation, including free medical care, for those that qualify.

Idaho National Engineering Laboratory—The Facility and Scope of Work
The 890-square-mile complex that is Idaho National Engineering Laboratory is situated in Idaho’s high-desert between Idaho Falls and Arco, ID. The remote location that made the site ideal for testing artillery in the 40s also made it a good location for a nuclear facility.
The work done at Idaho National Engineering Laboratory focused on producing nuclear power. The research conducted at the site culminated in the nuclear-powered submarine program.
Twilight Health works with former employees of the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory to help them get the benefits they need and deserve from the EEOICPA.
