Another Hanford tunnel storing radioactive waste at risk, study finds

A second tunnel storing radioactive waste at the Hanford nuclear reservation in Washington state has structural problems and is at risk of failing, according to a U.S. Energy Department investigation released Friday.

This tunnel is more than four times longer than the smaller Hanford tunnel that suffered a partial roof collapse May 9, triggering an order for more than 4,800 employees to stay indoors.

Thanks. This was an excellent article.

How many thousands they are charging or millions for a plastic sheet?
“Doug Shoop, a manager at the Energy Department’s Richland office, said a plastic covering has been placed over the tunnel that had the partial collapse in May.”

Trump and minions are working to undermine the protective zone Hanford Reach National Monument there too. 

There are 27 US National Monuments on the chopping block by Trump. Comment Deadline for them is July 10th: https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=DOI-2017-0002-0001
