Background: The appearance and chemical mixture in each Hanford Site waste tank depends on how the waste was generated and later waste management practices such as liquid evaporation, radionuclide removal, and waste mixing between tanks. The steel pipe was bent during past waste movement during a gas release ("burp"). For more information on the Hanford tanks, see Hanford Tank Cleanup: A Guide to Understanding the Technical Issues.
