        SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Workers on the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington state have finished cleaning up one of the nation's most contaminated radioactive waste sites, the U.S. Department of Energy said Thursday. The dangerous wastes at the site known as the Burial Ground stem from the production of plutonium for nuclear weapons and took eight years to clean up.   The U.S. Department of Energy said labeling some high-level waste as low level will save $40 billion in cleanup costs across the nation’s entire nuclear weapons complex.

      An expert science panel is calling for the US Department of Energy to overhaul science and technology development for cleaning up the nation’s nuclear weapons sites. The huge cleanup program has already taken nearly 40 years and will likely take at least 50 more, says a report released by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on March : Jeff Johnson.   AIKEN, S.C. — The Energy Department began cleaning up an environmental nightmare at the old Savannah River Site nuclear weapons plant here in and promised a bright future: Within a quarter.

Decades of U.S. nuclear weapons production have exacted a heavy environmental toll. The Department of Energy estimates that cleaning up waste and contamination resulting from production activities will cost over $ billion.

During the build-up to the Cold War, the U.S. government called upon hundreds of factories and research centers to help develop nuclear weapons and other forms of atomic energy. At many sites, this work left behind residual radioactive contamination requiring government cleanups, some of which are still going on.
