DOE to consider Hanford for mercury storage


Watch out Washington! USDOE is hoping to ship EVEN more waste to Hanford - but this time mercury! There will be public meetings in the Tri-Cities and Portland in August - stay tuned!

We have a few concerns about this, one being they didn't inform the public or stakeholders about it before they released the plan right before the July 4th holiday! Two, being the risks of trucks with toxic waste coming through our communities. And three the compounded risks to an already leaking nuclear waste site.
