Hanford Cleanup Slowing Down

OPB | March 27, 2013 12:45 p.m. | Updated: Sept. 11, 2013 12:39 a.m.

Tanks holding radioactive waste at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation have been leaking slowly for years. Some of that waste has already seeped into the nearby Columbia River. Now, federal budget cuts due to sequestration are slowing down the already troubled cleanup process even further. And environmental groups have been critical of a recent plan to ship some of the waste from Hanford to New Mexico.

What questions do you have about the cleanup efforts at Hanford?
