Visiting the City That Built the Hanford Nuclear Site

As my plane techniques the Tri-Towns Airport in south-central Washington point out, the sandy expanse outside my window presents way to hundreds of vibrant eco-friendly circles and squares. From this semi-arid terrain springs an irrigated oasis of potatoes, hops, peaches, and sweet corn. Just over and above our perspective is 1 of the most contaminated destinations in the globe: the Hanford Web-site, property to 177 getting old tanks of radioactive waste.
