Description

“The Human Toll of Hanford's Dirty Secrets” exposed a decades-long effort to hide the health threat posed to workers at the Hanford Nuclear Site in southeastern Washington. Since March dozens of workers (56 at the time of this writing) have become sick on the job after inhaling toxic chemical vapors emitted from underground nuclear storage tanks. These workers are just the most recent to be harmed by exposure to the vapors, which have been allowed to vent into the atmosphere dating back to the facility's establishment in the 1940s.
