Hanford: Myth or Reality

Posted by

hanfordPresented by Dieter Bohrmann of the WA Department of Ecology

  • Tuesday April 14, 1pm
  • PCC Cascade – MAHB 104

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.

Will this presentation be streamed online? (…or video captured for off-venue access?) Also, will there be opportunity here for any of the high-level Hanford critics (e.g. Senator Wyden, or the WA State Attorney General) to be heard?
