Nuclear sludge at Hanford put in safer storage Brown, Buehler could
break spending record
SPOKANE, Wash. —
in governor’s race
After 19 years of work to
By NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS
Associated Press
safeguard nuclear waste
dating from the Cold War,
workers at a sprawling
Washington state site have
managed to remove virtually
all of the radioactive waste
from 16 aging underground
steel tanks at risk of leaking.
The sludge left over from
the production of plutonium
for nuclear weapons was
transferred from the old
single walled tanks into
modern double wall tanks
that are considered much
safer, the U.S. Department
of Energy said in a statement
provided to The Associated
Press Monday.
While the event is
regarded as a major
milestone for the Hanford
Nuclear Reservation, the
waste removed came from
only one of the facility’s
12 tank farms containing
radioactive waste.
A government contractor
is in the final stages of
removing waste from one
of the tanks, which has a
capacity of 530,000 gallons,
the energy department said.
It has stored waste since
1947 and officials suspect it
has been leaking.
Cleanup of the waste at
Hanford has been underway
since the 1980s and is
expected to last for decades,
costing an additional $100
billion.
Hanford was established
by the Manhattan Project
during World War II to
make the plutonium for the
nuclear bomb dropped on
AP Photo/Manuel Valdes, file
In this May 9 photo, a structure is seen at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in
Richland, Wash. After almost two decades of work, the government has nearly
finished removing radioactive wastes from a first group of underground storage
tanks in eastern Washington.
Nagasaki, Japan, and most
of the plutonium during the
Cold War. The site is half
the size of Rhode Island and
is located in south-central
Washington near the city of
Richland.
Hanford officials decided
in 1997 that waste would
first be removed from the
tanks that are now nearly
emptied because several
were suspected of leaking.
There are 133 more single-
walled underground tanks at
the additional tank farms.
Washington state offi-
cials said the emptying of
the tanks on the farm is
a good step forward but
underscores the lengthy
additional cleanup work that
lies ahead.
“It’s taken longer than
we had hoped, but still
we’re very happy to see
retrievals completed at the
first Hanford tank farm,”
said Alex Smith, of the
state Ecology Department’s
nuclear waste program at
Hanford.
Hanford has 149 of
the single-walled tanks
containing about 56 million
gallons of some of the most
toxic waste on the planet.
The site has 28 of the newer
and larger double-walled
tanks.
Efforts to permanently
dispose of tank waste stored
at Hanford have stalled.
The energy department is
in the process of building a
long-delayed factory on site
that would convert the tank
waste into glass-like logs to
be stored in a national repos-
itory, if one is ever built.
Construction on the
factory has been slowed by
safety and design concerns.
The government wants to
build a repository for the
glass logs in Nevada, but
that state’s leaders have
balked.
Officials have said they
may pour concrete-like
grout into the emptied older
tanks to seal the residual
radioactive waste.
The original tanks were
planned for storing the waste
for 20 years but have done
so for 70 years. Seven were
suspected of having leaked
waste into the ground.

SALEM (AP) — Gov.
Kate Brown and Repub-
lican Rep. Knute Buehler
have together raised $5.3
million in the 2018 race
for governor, putting
them on pace to
exceed the most
expensive gover-
nor’s race in state
history.
Democrat
John Kitzhaber
and Republican
Chris
Dudley
raised and spent
more than $17.7 Brown
million in their
2010 race for
governor, won
narrowly
by
Kitzhaber. At this
point in 2009, the
year before the
election, neither
Kitzhaber
or
Dudley had even
announced they
were
running. Buehler
Both filed in
early February 2010.
The Bend Bulletin
reports that Brown and
Buehler have each already
surpassed the $2 million
fundraising mark. Buehler
has raised $1.96 million
this year. When added to
the $141,000 he carried
over from last year, his
total is $2.11 million. He’s
spent just over $549,000
and currently has $1.55
million in the bank.
Brown has raised $1.89
million this year. When
added to the $1.2 million
she rolled over from last
year, it gives her a total of
just under $3.15 million.
She has spent $1.17 million
and has $1.96 million in
the bank.
The numbers
could be higher.
Under state law,
candidates have
30 days to report
contributions and
expenditures.
Buehler
has
consistently
reported both as
they come in.
His last recorded
contribution was
Nov. 26. Brown
has
returned
to her earlier
practice of filing
in
intermittent
spurts, as the
law
allows.
Her current last
registered contri-
bution is from
Nov. 4.
Whether a crowded
primary campaign will
materialize
against
Buehler is yet to be seen.
Bend entrepreneur Sam
Carpenter is also vying
for the GOP nomination.
High-profile conservative
Republicans
such
as
Secretary of State Dennis
Richardson,
House
Minority Leader Mike
McLane of Powell Butte,
and Happy Valley Mayor
Lori
Chavez-DeRemer
have looked into the race
and passed.
