Tank Farms contractor Washington River Protection Solutions completed an upgrade to critical radioactive waste transfer lines at Hanford’s AZ Farm. Workers installed roughly 80 feet of double-walled piping used to transfer high-level radioactive waste between tanks. Funded through the Recovery Act, the upgrades prepare the tanks for delivering waste to the Waste Treatment Plant once it’s operational.
