Costs at Hanford Rise
The overall projected cost of the Hanford cleanup has increased more than 2 billion dollars from last year's estimate.
A new report from the Department of Energy, the Washington State Department of Ecology, and the US Environmental Protection Agency now estimates cleanup costs to be 114.8 billion dollars, that's up from 112 billion last year.
The report estimates that amount will fund cleanup and long-term maintenance of the Hanford site through the year 2090.
