Title: Vacuuming Radioactive Sludge

Abstract

Vacuuming an estimated 55 cubic yards of radioactive sludge from the floor of Hanford's K East Basin was a complicated process. Workers stood on grates suspended above the 20-foot deep basin and manipulated vacuuming equipment at the end of long poles, using underwater cameras to guide their work.
