Cleaning up radioactive waste contained in tanks at the Hanford nuclear reservation is one of the top challenges facing the U.S. Department of Energy, according to a new special report by the department’s Inspector General.

The independent oversight arm of the U.S. Department of Energy didn’t mince words. 
It says there are about 88 million gallons of radioactive tank waste across the nation that need to be cleaned up. And most is at Hanford.
