Latest Press Release: Elevated Radiation Indicator of Second DOuble-Shell tank Failure at Hanford Nuclear Site
April 26, 2016: Hanford Challenge today alleged that a second high-level nuclear waste tank at the Hanford nuclear site may have failed. The group, citing sources inside Hanford, says that above-background levels of Cesium-137, plutonium and a high-beta emitter (likely Strontium-90) all radioactive by-products commonly found in Hanford tanks, were recently measured outside of the primary liner in Tank AY-101, one of the first of the 28 double-shelled tanks built at Hanford about 40 years ago.
