#1 is a landfill site, possibly hazmat. In Google Earth historical images you can see how the site grew over the years and how new landfill sections were developed.

#2 is Area 12 of the NNSS (former NTS). In the 1990's it was used as a research facility to detect bio-weapons signatures under project BACHUS.

#3 is the entrance to the U12u tunnel. There is another similar tunnel entrance to U12v about 1/2 mile to the SW. As you may know I lost all my records but from memory the tunnels served radiation shielding tests. I believe in the early 2000's.

You can find a Google Earth plugin with more info on these and other sites in the NNSS in our maps section under "Places of interest in the NNSS (former NTS)"
