Meeting Thursday on storage for Hanford’s highly radioactive capsules via Tri-City Herald

A discussion of the area where highly radioactive cesium and strontium capsules will be stored at the Hanford nuclear reservation is planned Sept 21.

Now 1,936 capsules of cesium and strontium are stored underwater in the Waste Encapsulation and Storage Facility in central Hanford.

The capsules are planned to be moved to dry storage because of the risk that a severe earthquake could damage the concrete pool where they are stored.

The meeting is at 5:30 p.m. at the Richland Public Library, 955 Northgate Drive. To watch it online, register at www.hanford.govat the link in the event calendar.
