Toxic Nuclear Legacy

America's Nuclear Nightmare: Hanford Cleanup Now $112 Billion By Annette Cary, Tri-City Herald 09 February 12

[Excerpted] "The new price tag for completing the remainder of Hanford nuclear reservation cleanup, plus some post-cleanup oversight, is $112 billion... The 2012 report is the second to be compiled for Hanford, which is contaminated with radioactive and chemical waste from the World War II and Cold War production of plutonium for the nation's nuclear weapons program."

Tri-City Herald: "89 sieverts per hour measured in soil near Columbia River in Washington — Worst contamination just feet from groundwater"
