Work underway at the Hanford tank farms.


Hanford Challenge will hold a public meeting Wednesday to discuss chemical vapor exposures at the nuclear site.

Former Hanford worker Mike Geffre will play host to the meeting, scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Richland Community Center, 500 Amon Park Drive. There will be brief remarks by Hanford Challenge Executive Director Tom Carpenter.

Hanford workers are invited to discuss their perspectives. Dozens of workers have been sent for medical evaluation over the past several months following exposures to chemical vapors emanating from highly radioactive wastes stored at the sites.

Admission is free.
