Presentation on Hanford Nuclear Reservation - The Most Contaminated Site in the USA. Recent reports of nuclear waste tunnels collapsing and leaking storage tanks on the Hanford site, make this update and brief background report particularly timely for our Climate Change and Water Issuesgroup to consider.
Local League member Jan Catrell serves on the Hanford Advisory Board River and Plateau Committee. She will give us a brief history on how this site came to be so contaminated, clean up, and what's being planned for the future. With more nuclear energy being proposed by some as a green power alternative, we need to understand the clean up strategies and the possibilities for future safe storage of nuclear waste. A question period will take place after the presentation.
