A Roundtable Discussion: Hanford Tank Cleanup
Third Annual Oregon River Protection Forum
Saturday, October 25, 2003
9:30 - Noon
1945 Water Street SE Portland, Oregon
For over a decade, NW citizens have insisted that the U.S. Government build a facility to safely remove and treat the 53 million gallons of nuclear waste currently stored in decaying underground tanks at Hanford.
Now, progress is being made on construction of a "vitrification plant" to turn the liquid waste into glass - - and PROTECT THE COLUMBIA RIVER.
How much has been done?
Is the project on schedule?
Will the plant vitrify all of the waste?
What about "supplemental technologies?"
Please join us for an informal roundtable discussion with local activists, DOE leaders including River Protection Manager Roy Schepens, and contractor presidents to find out the answers to these and other critical questions.
