Cleaning Up Hanford
A herd of elk graze Monday, May 7, 2012 near the school at the old Hanford, Wash. town site on the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. The old town was taken over by the government in the early 1940s under its eminent domain authority. The government ordered about 1,500 residents of Hanford, White Bluffs, and nearby settlements to leave and also closed the area to the Wanapum band and regional tribes. Work is underway at the Hanford complex to clean up contamination from past production of nuclear weapons. (AP Photo/The Tri-City Herald, Richard Dickin)
