    Default Washington State nuclear waste tanks leaking

    Washington State nuclear waste tanks 'leaking'

    Six underground storage tanks at a nuclear site in the US state of Washington are leaking, authorities say.

    Nearly 200 ageing containers hold millions of litres of radioactive waste left from decades of plutonium production for nuclear weapons.

    Last week, a leak was reported in one of the storage tanks. Officials said it was leaking at a rate of up 300 gallons (1,136 litres) per year.

    Established as part of the Manhattan Project in 1943, Hanford was home to the world's first full-scale plutonium production facility.

    The site produced the plutonium for the bomb that was dropped on the Japanese city of Nagasaki. Production at Hanford continued until 1989.

    When you have eliminated all the impossible, whatever remains, however implausible, must be the logic truth...

    Basically this means that all the people in Washington are really in danger of poisoning.

    It is dangerous to drink water or even taking a shower for all those who live in that state.
