A letter has been sent to the Department Of Energy from the Hanford Advisory Board, telling the Feds the amount of money set aside to ‘finish’ cleanup at the Hanford Nuclear Site might not be enough.

Reports estimate the cost of the total cleanup as well as efforts to keep any current contamination from spreading.   115 Billion has been set aside for the job, which is supposed to be finished by 2060, but the Advisory Board says that night not be enough. According to the board, the estimate does not include some of the work that will still need to be performed to ensure ‘complete’ cleanup and maintenance of the site.
