Hanford gets deadlines to fix underground contamination

This article from today's Seattle Post Intelligencer explains some of what went on at the Hanford Advisory Board meeting in Seattle last week. Heart of America NW's executive director, Gerry Pollet, was one of the parties pushing for an extension of the public comment period on the proposed TPA changes. Governor Gregiore (WA) originally announced on August 11th that the public comment period would run from September 24th - November 4th. We'd like to see the comment period extended at least a month to give everyone ample time to comment.

"But the nastiest of Hanford's underground wastes has not yet oozed from the site's center to the river."
