The Big Wobble – 
Radiation is found 10 miles away from the Hanford Nuclear Reservation as demolition work is halted after contamination of workers

” . . . Dozens of workers demolishing a plutonium processing plant from the 1940s have inhaled or ingested radioactive particles in the past year, and even carried some of that radiation into their vehicles, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
The incidents have prompted the federal government, along with state regulators, to halt the demolition of the sprawling Plutonium Finishing Plant until a safety plan can be developed. . . . “

  • ” Radioactive particles are known to have contaminated 42 workers”
  • “Radioactive contamination was also found outside plant offices and inside two dozen vehicles”
  • “All the contamination was found on lands that are closed to the public.”
  • “The U.S. Department of Energy declared an emergency at the site at 8:26 a.m. Tuesday after a routine check found that a portion of a storage tunnel that contains radioactive waste had collapsed.




April 10 – Officials think they know why Priest Rapids Dam above Hanford is leaking

“In late March, Grant PUD declared a “non-failure emergency” out of what it described as an abundance of caution.
Checks were being done at the dam, following the detection and repair of a large crack at the Grant PUD’s Wanapum Dam upstream.”

NOTE – “abundance of caution” is legal terminology – FC
