Radioactive contamination triggers Hanford management change


January 31, 2018

RICHLAND, Wash. (AP) — The Department of Energy is replacing the managers of a critical radioactive cleanup project after the continued spread of contamination on the Hanford Nuclear Reservation.

The Tri-City Herald reports the announcement Monday comes after radioactive contamination was again found on a worker's personnel vehicle. The Department of Energy wants other employee cars retested, including a rental car its contractor had to track down.

Replacing the project managers is intended to rebuild confidence with workers and the public and show the project is being safely managed.
