Radioactive waste leaking from six tanks at Washington state nuclear site | Reuters

More radioactive leaking has been discovered at Washington state’s Hanford Nuclear Reservation, the nation’s most polluted nuclear weapons production site. At least six tanks are now leaking radioactive waste, up from last week’s disclosure of just one tank. Hanford currently houses more than 53 million gallons of radioactive waste. Washington state officials insist the leak poses no immediate risk to public health.
