Join us on Monday, August 20, 2018, for an in-depth look at U.S. Department of Energy’s proposal to reclassify high-level radioactive waste at Hanford. By reclassifying Hanford’s high-level tank waste as low-level waste, the federal government is setting the stage to leave toxic and radioactive pollution in tanks, soils, and groundwater close to the Columbia River at Hanford.

PUREX Tunnels Permit Modification - Richland Public Hearing

The Washington State Department of Ecology will be holding a public hearing in Richland at the Richland Public Library on August 27, 2018 to present and take public comments on the PUREX Tunnels Permit Modification. 

Ecology invites you to review and comment on this proposed permit modification. The proposed permit modifications affect the PUREX Storage Tunnels.The tunnels store waste, mostly large equipment components, from the PUREX Plant and other onsite sources. By completing the response action for Tunnel 1 and the proposed interim closure action for Tunnel 2, the tunnels will continue to safely store the waste. For more information please see the NWP public comment period page. The Sitewide Permit is Ecology’s tool for regulating the treatment, storage, and disposal of dangerous and mixed wastes (containing radioactive and hazardous chemicals) at Hanford. The permit’s purpose is to regulate the cleanup of the Hanford site while protecting people and the environment. The permit sets conditions based on the state’s laws and regulations that control the treatment, storage, and disposal of dangerous wastes.
