Hanford waste hearing is Tuesday in Richland

The state Department of Ecology will hold a public hearing at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday on proposed requirements for Hanford's single-shell tanks.

The state just has released the final portion of its draft Hanford Facility Dangerous Waste Permit covering Hanford's 149 single-shell tanks holding millions of gallons of radioactive and hazardous chemical waste.

The hearing will be at the Richland Public Library.
