Thanks for the link to the update MariaLida.
I've been bad about reading the paper and watching the news lately so I'd not heard about the double-tanks leaking, only the singles. I did hear
some fear-mongering a few weeks ago about the risk of hydrogen gas build-up in the doubles and possible explosion but at the end of the radio report,
the announcer finally mentioned that pressure was monitored and there was NO build up of hydrogen.
From reading the responses in the OP, I think some people are confusing the Hanford site (Manhattan project/cold war) with the Columbia Generating
Station (nuclear power station). As far as I know, there are no issues at the power station. The Hanford site, though, is home to the largest
environmental cleanup effort in the US and it isn't going well. War, war-mongering and the concept of MAD will leave its mark until the end of time.
