RICHLAND, Wash. -- Governor Jay Inslee will get his own look at the Hanford nuclear facility.

His first visit since radioactive waste was found leaking from six tanks.

Inslee will meet with representatives from the departments of energy and ecology next Wednesday.

It's to learn more about the leaks and the overall status of the facility.

A thousand gallons of radioactive material a year could be reaching the soil.

Investigators maintain there's no immediate threat to the public.
