Leak worsens in massive Hanford tank holding nuclear waste
Catastrophic’: Up to 3,500 gallons of nuclear waste leak at Washington State storage site — RT Aver 100,000 gallons of Radioactive Liquid (Dissolved Nuclear Rods) into the Columbia River form Hanford Nuclear Reservation today based on the size of the empty tank.
See for yourself.
Between 1949 and 1955, five more reactors were constructed at Hanford. In addition, the power levels were increased on all eight of the reactors to provide more plutonium for the country's nuclear arsenal during the Cold War. This required a significant increase in the amount of cooling water. The greater flow of cooling water reduced the time it spent in the retention basins down to as short as 20 minutes. Since the retention time was shorter the amount of radioactivity that was still present in the water when it went back into the Columbia increased. The Columbia River contamination levels were highest from 1957 to 1964. The ninth reactor built at Hanford, also the last, had a different cooling system. The N Reactor had two cooling systems and was designed so that the cooling water exposed inside the reactor was not released back into the Columbia but instead went to trenches along the banks.
