A highlight from this article on Hanford.
From Mining Awareness, April 19, 2016
The current Hanford contractor, WRPS, LLC, for the leaky Hanford radioactive waste tanks is a consortium comprised of AECOM (due to recent purchase of URS), EnergySolutions (owned by Energy Capital Partners – mostly former Goldman Sachs investment bankers led by Doug Kimmelman), and French Government owned AREVA, which would be bankrupt if it weren’t French State owned. If AREVA knows so much then why did the US take French HEU (highly enriched uranium) or HEU waste off the hands of the French? Why didn’t the French take Swiss HEU waste or Swiss plutonium? Why, instead, was it dumped on America? 
Why is France co-managing nuclear waste facilities in the U.S.?
Is AREVA dumping nuclear waste in the U.S.?
AREVA dumps nuclear waste at sea in France. It used to dump drums of waste at sea. These are AREVA’s environmental credentials. It cares nothing for the environment.
The beautiful Columbia River. Salmon. The ocean.
Not important to AREVA or the French government or WRPS.
