An Oregon Field Guide Special Report: The Hanford Cleanup

OPB | Feb. 1, 1994 7:30 p.m.

Even though plutonium production ceased in 1989, the reservation still has millions of gallons of high-level radioactive waste buried in aging tanks. This one-hour documentary gives viewers an opportunity to see sites at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation that were previously off limits, and looks at federal options to cleanup the site, safety issues, and cost to the public.

First Broadcast: 1994
Producer: Jeff Douglas
