Environmental Stewardship 

The Kansas City National Security Campus (KCNSC) environmental stewardship goals are to:

  • Protect human health and the environment while maintaining the country's ability to defend against enemies
  • Preserve, protect and make accessible records and information impacting the environment 
  • Manage land and assets, emphasizing safety and responsibility and informed impact on the environment

The Kansas City National Security Campus

KCNSC is comprised of facilities in the greater Kansas City and Albuquerque, New Mexico and is responsible for manufacturing and procuring non-nuclear components for nuclear weapons, including electronic, mechanical and engineered material components. KCNSC complies with all current federal, state and local environment regulations and standards. 

Annual Site Environmental Summary

The Annual Site Environmental Summary (ASES) is a summary of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) Kansas City National Security Campus (KCNSC) environmental programs, activities, and compliance status for the calendar year.

The ASES is prepared annually as information for the general public and other stakeholders to:

  • Summarize the results of environmental compliance and monitoring programs;
  • Characterize site environmental management performance;
  • Provide compliance status with applicable environmental standards and requirements;
  • Highlight significant achievements, programs, and efforts which go beyond regulatory requirements; and
  • Provide an overview of quality assurance.

Bannister Federal Complex

After the Bannister Federal Complex property, including the Kansas City plant was vacated, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) worked to accomplish a timely, cost-effective transfer to accelerate revitalization of the property. Working with the state and federal regulators, DOE also worked to ensure complete and effective remediation of legacy contamination.

In 2017, the DOE transferred ownership of the Bannister Federal Complex property to Bannister Transformation and Development LLC (BT&D), a private developer for demolition, remediation and redevelopment. For more information about the property transfer or environmental remediation, please visit BT&D or Missouri Department of Natural Resources. Inquiries may also be directed to Sybil Newchurch Chandler at (816) 488-3417 or Kingsley Edwards at (816) 488-4200.
