Wasting the Columbia River (4/4/00)

Date of this Version

April 2000


The Hanford Nuclear Reservation is the most contaminated places in North America, thanks to the Department of Energy. For five years in the 1960's Hanford officials buried deadly radioactive waste in underground trenches near the Columbia River. Predictions are that the contamination could reach the river in about three years. Meanwhile, Northwest tribes are working to protect their salmon supply and other treaty rights. Invited guests include Ted Strong of the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission.
