The state Department of Ecology has set February 15th as the deadline for the Department of Energy to come up with a new plan for dealing with a leaking double-walled tank at Hanford.

Ecology officials say they are disappointed with the Department of Energy's previous plan dealing with Tank AY-102.

The state Department of Ecology wants the nuclear waste pumped from the tank which is left over from production of plutonium for nuclear weapons.
