Hanford, called the most contaminated site in North America, presents the paradox of massive contamination next to a river preserved in its natural state. Hanford borders the Hanford Reach of the Columbia River – about 200 miles upstream from Portland. Understand Hanford requires more knowledge than headlines about leaking radioactive waste tanks and missed cleanup deadlines. The Washington Department of Ecology, a Hanford regulator, will discuss some Hanford history as well as the current progress and challenges of the nuclear cleanup efforts.
