6 tanks at Hanford nuclear site in Wash. leaking
Feb 23, 2013
 underground tanks that hold a brew of radioactive and toxic waste at the nation's most contaminated nuclear site are leaking, federal and state officials said Friday, prompting calls for an investigation from a key senator.
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said the leaking material poses no immediate risk to public safety or the environment because it would take a while — perhaps years — to reach groundwater.

Radioactive waste leaking from six tanks at Washington state nuclear site  - Six underground storage tanks at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation along the Columbia River in Washington state were recently found to be leaking radioactive waste, but there is no immediate risk to human health, state and federal officials said on Friday.
The seeping waste adds to decades of soil contamination caused by leaking storage tanks at Hanford in the past and threatens to further taint groundwater below the site but poses no near-term danger of polluting the Columbia River, officials said.

The newly discovered leaks were revealed by Governor Jay Inslee a week after the U.S. Energy Department disclosed that radioactive waste was found to be escaping from one tank at Hanford.
Inslee said he was informed on Friday by outgoing U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu that a total of six of the aging, single-walled tanks were leaking radioactive waste.
There is no immediate or near-term health risk

Radioactive liquids at Hanford WA leaking
A tank that holds radioactive liquids is leaking at Hanford, the nation's most
contaminated nuclear site, raising concerns about the integrity of other storage facilities at the Hanford
Nuclear Reservation.  The tanks hold millions of gallons of a highly radioactive stew left from decades of
plutonium production for nuclear weapons.  Hanford is in eastern Washington State.  It was part of a project to
build the atomic bomb. A few small earthquakes have shaken eastern Washington in recent years.

Tank at Hanford nuclear site leaking radioactive liquids
2/15/13  OLYMPIA, Wash. - A tank that holds radioactive liquids is leaking at the nation's most contaminated nuclear site, Wash. Gov. Jay Inslee said Friday, raising concerns about the integrity of other storage facilities at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation.

The U.S. Department of Energy said liquid levels are decreasing in one of 177 underground tanks at the nuclear reservation. Monitoring wells near the tank have not detected higher radiation levels, the agency said. Inslee said the leak could be in the range of 150 gallons to 300 gallons over the course of a year.

"I am alarmed about this on many levels," Inslee said at a Friday afternoon news conference. "This raises concerns, not only about the existing leak ... but also concerning the integrity of the other single shell tanks of this age."
The tanks hold millions of gallons of a highly radioactive stew left from decades of plutonium production for nuclear weapons.
Inslee said the state was told such problems had been dealt with years ago and were under control.
Energy Secretary Steven Chu said the federal government must not waiver in its commitment to clean up the highly contaminated site, Inslee told reporters.

The tank in question contains about 447,000 gallons of sludge, a mixture of solids and liquids with a mud-like consistency. The tank, built in the 1940s, is known to have leaked in the past, but was stabilized in 1995 when all liquids that could be pumped out of it were removed.
Inslee said the tank is the first to have been documented to be losing liquids since all Hanford tanks were stabilized in 2005.

At the height of World War II, the federal government created Hanford in the remote sagebrush of eastern Washington as part of a hush-hush project to build the atomic bomb. The site ultimately produced plutonium for the world's first atomic blast and for one of two atomic bombs dropped on Japan, effectively ending the war.

Plutonium production continued there through the Cold War, but today, Hanford is the nation's most contaminated nuclear site.
Cleanup will cost billions of dollars and last decades.
Central to that cleanup is the removal of millions of gallons of a highly toxic, radioactive stew — enough to fill dozens of Olympic-size swimming pools — from 177 aging, underground tanks. Over time, many of those tanks have leaked, threatening the groundwater and the neighboring Columbia River, the largest waterway in the Pacific Northwest.

Construction of a $12.3 billion plant to convert the waste to a safe, stable form is years behind schedule and billions of dollars over budget. Technical problems have slowed the project, and several workers have raised lawsuits in recent months, claiming they were retaliated against for raising concerns about the plant's design and safety.

Fukishima Radiation Impact
Feb 26, 2013
 The WHO said, “Yes, there is a risk of exposure as a result of contamination in food.
However, contaminated food would have to be consumed over prolonged periods to represent a risk to human health.”
Radiation is bio-cumulative, and since we must all continue to eat to survive, that means prolonged radiation exposure, resulting in a risk to our health.
“The radioactive iodine and caesium in concentrations above the Japanese regulatory limits have been detected in some food commodities as a result of food monitoring”.

Hanford tank may be leaking waste into soil

An underground tank holding some of the worst radioactive waste at the nation's most contaminated nuclear site might be leaking into the soil.

The U.S. Energy Department said workers at Washington state's Hanford Nuclear Reservation detected higher radioactivity levels under tank AY-102 during a routine inspection Thursday.

Spokeswoman Lori Gamache said the department has notified Washington officials and is investigating the leak further. An engineering analysis team will conduct additional sampling and video inspection to determine the source of the contamination, she said.

State and federal officials have long said leaking tanks at Hanford do not pose an immediate threat to the environment or public health. The largest waterway in the Pacific Northwest — the Columbia River — is still at least 5 miles away and the closest communities are several miles downstream.

However, if this dangerous waste escapes the tank into the soil, it raises concerns about it traveling to the groundwater and someday potentially reaching the river.

Hanford tanks used single-wall tanks for radioactive sludge from plutonium, now leak tainting groundwater  
http://www.nonaiswa.org


Hanford (WA) has been releasing radiation in to the rivers.

HANFORD DOWNWINDERS WERE KEPT IN THE DARK!

Maps of the Exposure Area and Indian Nations Affected
Primary Areas Exposed to Radiation from Hanford and Exposure Pathways -- Shows the counties in Washington, Oregon and Idaho primarily affected from Hanford's releases.

You may have been exposed to radiation released from Hanford if you lived in certain areas of Washington, Oregon or Idaho between 1944 and 1972, and may be more at risk for health problems related to radiation than people who did not live in these areas.

The Hanford Nuclear Reservation in southeastern Washington state released radioactive material into the air, soil and Columbia River. Most of the radioactive material was released from 1944 to 1972. The area exposed extends across Eastern Washington, northeastern Oregon, and much of Idaho, into Montana and Canada, and through the Columbia River downstream from Hanford to Pacific coastal areas. As many as 2 million people were exposed.
The main way people were exposed to radiation released to the air was through drinking contaminated milk or food, or use of the river and adjacent Pacific coastal areas.

Radiation peril in river rising
WOW!  Between Hanford and fukushima, the west coast is dangerous.

And that isnt including earthquakes and missiles from China.
Radiation is increasing near salmon beds in the Columbia River.

Norm Buske detected radium-225 (uranium-233) in the Hanford Reach where 80% of the Columbia fall Chinook salmon spawn.
Salmon researchers say they found no proof that radiation is causing chromosome abnormalities in Hanford Reach salmon.

Radiation sucked up from Hanford soils by the roots of tumbleweeds. Uranium may have been intentionally dumped in the river near the defunct D Reactor.
He suspects it was dumped because it contained dangerous fluoride and didn't meet requirements for on-site disposal in tanks or soil.
This all goes to if we can trust our govt.  We cant.  NO PROOF aka plausible deniability.

Radioactive Waste Is Leaking From Washington's Hanford Nuclear Reservation
Tyler Durden's pictureSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 02/22/2013 19:30 -0400
In the 1940s the federal government created the now mostly decommissioned Washington's Hanford Nuclear Reservation as part of the Manhattan Project to build the atomic bomb. During the Cold War, the project was expanded to include nine nuclear reactors and five large plutonium processing complexes, which produced plutonium for most of the 60,000 weapons in the U.S. nuclear arsenal. Sadly, many of the early safety procedures and waste disposal practices were inadequate, and government documents have since confirmed that Hanford's operations released significant amounts of radioactive materials into the air and the Columbia River.

Radioactive waste leaks into northwestern river
February 23, 2013
 Radioactive waste is leaking from six underground tanks at America’s most-contaminated facility in Washington, the state’s government announced on Friday. Just how much toxic stew got into the Columbia River’s underground basin is unclear.

The leak at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation has so far not posed an immediate health risk to the public, Governor Jay Inslee said, because it will take a long time, years perhaps, for the waste to reach the groundwater. But the leakages have not been stopped yet.

The US Department of Energy spokeswoman Lindsey Geisler promised federal officials will to collaborate with Washington State to deal with the emergency.

US Senator Ron Wyden from Oregon, who chairs the Senate's Energy and Natural Resources Committee, said that “This should represent an unacceptable threat to the Pacific Northwest for everybody. There are problems that have to be solved, and the Department of Energy cannot say what changes are needed, when they will be completed, or what they will cost.”
The troubled Hanford nuclear facility is situated very close to the border of Wyden’s native Oregon State.

Columbia River and Hanford   Govt website
The Columbia River was critical to Hanford during its plutonium production mission since river water was used to cool down the nuclear reactors when they were in operation. So, construction crews built all nine of the reactors within close proximity to the Columbia. In addition, Hanford’s 300 Area, a complex of buildings used to conduct experiments as well as manufacture equipment for use throughout the Site, is also located near the river shore. The Columbia River Corridor accounts for about 220 square miles of the Hanford Site.

Today, cleanup work to preserve and protect the Columbia River is the top priority at Hanford.  Thousands of workers are involved in hundreds of projects designated to clean up existing contamination and waste sites that are close to the Columbia, preventing that contamination from reaching the river, and cocooning or demolishing structures that are no longer in use.

Cleaning up the River Corridor is a huge task. In fact, the River Corridor Closure Project is the nation’s largest environmental cleanup closure project. There are more than 760 solid and liquid waste sites associated with the project. The soil underneath many of the waste sites also may be contaminated and must be cleaned up along with the material which caused the contamination in the first place. Above ground, there are more than 1,000 structures which must be removed. Some of the facilities are contaminated themselves, which means that before any demolition is done, steps have to be taken to ensure that neither the crews, nor the environment will be harmed during the work.

Washington state nuclear leak
April  21, 2016
 -  Nuclear leak at Washington Hanford Site is CATASTROPHIC, former worker claims, as 8 inches of radioactive waste escapes core of tank.
  Tank has two shells; a crack was spotted in the inner one in 2011
  Now that crack has widened, spilling waste into the gap between the shells
  It happened after attempts to pump the waste out of the tank
  The double-shell tank can contain up to a million gallons of deadly waste
  It was supposed to be the safest possible container for radioactive liquid
  The Hanford Site provided plutonium for the first atomic bomb -dailymail.co.uk
