HistoryThe guard towers and guard post, as well as a double perimeter fence with closed circuit television and alarms, were installed in 1983 as part of a $5 million Perimeter Security Zone (PSZ) to protect the plutonium operations buildings from potential terrorist attack. The access control buildings were added to the security area, now known as the Protected Area (PA), in 1989.
