Some of the single-shell tanks contain very refractory solids whose complete removal may be difficult or even impossible without destroying the integrity of the tanks.

    Final Hanford Natural Resource Damage Assessment Injury Assessment Plan ES-1 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY This Injury Assessment Plan is intended to describe the Hanford Trustees’ current understanding of the studies necessary to determine and quantify contaminant-related injury to Hanford Site natural resources and to assess associated service losses. During August through October , the Hanford Site Public Safety and Resource Protection Program and the Washington State Department of Health lead a multi-agency study to characterize the radiological and chemical conditions existing in the near-shore environment of the Hanford Site’s Area.

    Hanford Site Tank Farm Ecological Risk Assessment – WMAC. Sampling small mammals to ascertain contaminant risk. The Central Plateau of the Hanford Site houses underground tanks grouped into 18 farms. The tanks store 56 million gallons of highly radioactive and chemical waste generated during World War II and Cold War weapons production.
