Default Hanford Clean Up



Does anyone have a reference to a short news article or journal article
that describes the extent of the clean up needed at Hanford? Example:
There are XX millions of gallons of radioactive waste contained in the
tanks farms. etc...

I have tried searching thru Google but come up with a lot of government
reports etc. I looking more for how much is there as in the example
given.

I know people who work/ed at Hanford on encapsulating the stuff in glass and
attended some talks years ago
believe me - the less you know - the better you'll feel.!
I've heard figures of 100+ years at present cleanup rates.

Just don't move to central WA, and you'll never have to worry about it...

This was where the plutonium for the Nagasaki bomb was made, wasn't it?

Look at a map of the Hanford Reservation to best appreciate the scale of
the job.
