Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS) is the Department of Energy Office of River Protection prime contractor responsible for safely retrieving approximately 53 million gallons of highly radioactive and hazardous waste stored in 177 underground tanks. The waste is stored in 149 older single-shell tanks and 28 newer double-shell tanks that are grouped in 18 farms at the 560-square-mile Hanford Site in southeastern Washington. The tank contents include materials from years of World-War-II and post-war weapons production, which account for 60 percent by volume of the nation’s high-level radioactive waste. These aging and deteriorating tanks are just a few miles from the Columbia River.
Reducing risks caused by these wastes and preparing them for treatment are critical parts of the ongoing mission of Washington River Protection Solutions.
With the current clean-up schedule extending to 2047, WRPS is in a unique position to offer true career opportunities.
