WPSR’s Hanford Task Force recently had the opportunity to review a report on suspected new and unreported leaks from Hanford’s high-level radioactive waste tanks. This report was prepared by John R. Brodeur, P.E., L.E.G, an environmental engineer and geologist who worked at Hanford during the 1990s. The document is titled "Recent Leaks From Hanford’s High-Level Waste Tanks: USDOE’s Failure to Monitor, Report or Characterize Tank Leaks" (April 2006). This is WPSR's review of those new allegations.

This research was completed money allocated during Round 6 of the Citizens’ Monitoring and Technical Assessment Fund (MTA Fund). Clark University was named conservator of these works.
