Visiting the City That Built the Hanford Nuclear Site

As my plane methods the Tri-Metropolitan areas Airport in south-central Washington state, the sandy expanse

As my plane methods the Tri-Metropolitan areas Airport in south-central Washington state, the sandy expanse outside the house my window presents way to hundreds of dazzling green circles and squares. From this semi-arid terrain springs an irrigated oasis of potatoes, hops, peaches, and sweet corn. Just further than our view is 1 of the most contaminated spots in the earth: the Hanford Website, household to 177 growing old tanks of radioactive squander.
