This award-winning book is a succinct, yet encyclopedic guide to understanding the nuclear waste problem at Hanford, Washington. The authors consolidate vast areas of information into a concise and readable guide for the non-scientist. They show how the Department of Energy stored 54 million gallons of radioactive waste in 177 underground storage tanks. They offer diagrams of both the storage tanks and the farms in which they reside. The process of vitrification is presented. The book discusses ecological concerns, and outlines several plans for cleanup. The book is a superb asset to understanding the task of tank cleanup of nuclear wastes at Hanford.
