More Fallout from Tank Farm Spill

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.- The U.S. Department of Energy and its contractor are being hit again for a radioactive spill in Hanford's S-Farm in July 2007.

DOE and contractor CH2M Hill Hanford Group have agreed on a proposed $30,000 settlement with the EPA.  

The agreement means the two parties will pay a $6,400 fine along with a $24,000 investment in new equipment for local emergency responders.
