May take years...May not...But one thing is certain...It WILL reach groundwater...
This article says it is leaking into the ground
“Before the last of the pumpable liquids were removed from single-shell tanks in 2004, an estimated 1 million gallons of waste leaked or spilled from the tanks and their distribution systems. Some of that has reached the groundwater, but movement from central Hanford to the Columbia River five miles away is slow.”
It will reach groundwater—
Not if we move the groundwater!
Dry up the Columbia or divert it. Dig a channel to the Rio Grande and give it to Mexico, that’s only fair. The US stole the Rio Grande Water I’m sure.
That will turn Eastern WA into a completely barren desert. It is Conservative anyway, and all it does is produce a lot of food-so what difference does it make?
Sounds shovel-ready to me. Contact the EPA.
