Hanford-waste-tanksGov. Jay Inslee says no available technology to plug the radiation leak FEBRUARY 28, 2013 BY:  Washington state governor Jay Inslee said Wednesday that there is no available technology to plug the radiation leaks at Hanford Nuclear Reservation.

Radioactive waste tanks may be leaking some 1,000 gallons per year at the Hanford Nuclear facility….. Hanford has 177 aging tanks storing millions of gallons of radioactive sludge.

Faulty data analysis meant officials did not properly catch signs of leaking before now, according to Inslee.
