Hanford Site Cleanup Objectives Inconsistent With Projected Land Uses

The cleanup of the Hanford Site (Hanford) is estimated to take over 50 years at a cost close to $100 billion. Prior reviews have shown that unrealistic land use assumptions can increase cleanup costs. Therefore, the objective of this audit was to determine if the Richland Operations Office (Richland) was cleaning Hanford consistent with projected land uses.
