The tunnel that contained highly radioactive wastes left over from production of plutonium for nuclear weapons partially collapsed on May 9, prompting evacuation of nearby workers. The hole left by the partial collapse was filled with more than 50 truckloads of soil the next day. The Energy Department has said no workers were injured and no airborne radiation escaped into the environment as a result of the incident. The agency said the cover will provide additional protection while work continues to find a permanent fix. Crews from contractor CH2M HILL Plateau Remediation Company placed the cover over the tunnel and secured it on the sides with heavy concrete blocks. Over the next few days, crews will string cables across the cover. "Since this event began, our focus has been on protecting our workers, the public, and the environment," said Doug Shoop, manager of the Department of Energy's Richland, Washington, office, where Hanford is located. The heavy plastic cover has a high density polyethylene woven core and is resistant to puncture, abrasion, chemicals, ultraviolet rays and oxidation, the agency said. At approximately 40,000 square feet (3,716 square meters), the cover will also limit water intrusion on the tunnel. The 360-foot long (110-meter) rail tunnel was built in 1956 from timber, concrete and steel. Radioactive waste was stored inside and the entrance was sealed in 1965. The waste came from a nearby factory where plutonium was extracted from 1956 to 1988 from spent nuclear fuel rods as part of the process to make nuclear weapons. The tunnel contains about 780 cubic yards (596 cubic meters) of waste—a mixture of radioactive and chemical waste and irradiated equipment, including eight contaminated rail cars used to haul the fuel rods. The incident occurred at the smaller of two tunnels located near the closed Plutonium Uranium Extraction Plant. The larger one was built in 1964 and contains 28 railroad cars filled with radioactive waste. The Energy Department was warned in a 2015 report it commissioned that both tunnels were vulnerable to a collapse from an earthquake or deterioration of tunnel building materials caused by intense radiation. Hanford, created during the World War II Manhattan Project to build an atomic bomb, stopped making plutonium in the 1980s. The 500-square mile (1,300-square kilometer) site now is engaged in cleaning up the radioactive waste. The tunnel collapse reinforced longstanding criticism that toxic remnants at Hanford are being stored in haphazard and unsafe conditions, and time is running out to deal with the problem. The cleanup of all Hanford's waste is expected to last until 2060 and cost an additional $100 billion over the $19 billion already spent. The most dangerous waste at Hanford is 56 million gallons (212 million liters) stored in 177 underground tanks, some of which have leaked. Plans to embed the toxic stew in glass logs for burial have floundered. Construction of a $17 billion glassification factory has been delayed because of design and safety issues.

Methods and systems for utilizing biological wastewater treatment processes to remove nutrients from wastewater containing reduced sulfide compounds may include treating the wastewater in an anaerobic zone, an anoxic zone, and an aerobic zone. The wastewater is first treated in the anaerobic zone to uptake residual biodegradable organic material using specialized bacteria known as phosphorus accumulating organisms (PAOs) and glycogen accumulating organisms (GAOs). After treatment in the anaerobic zone, the wastewater is treated in an anoxic zone to convert nitrates to nitrogen gas and sulfur to sulfates. Following treatment in the anoxic zone, the wastewater is treated in the aerobic zone to oxidize ammonia to nitrate and to complete removal of phosphorus. After treatment in the aerobic zone, the wastewater may be treated in other zones, or may be delivered to a liquid-solids treatment stage.

Methods and apparatuses are disclosed for optimizing oil and gas wells. Some embodiments may include optimizing a gas well based upon continuous measurements of the wells operating parameters, such as casing pressure draw down and/or line pressure surges. These continuous measurements of the wells parameters may be utilized to derive an empirical model of the wells behavior that is more accurate than conventional approaches with respect to the various stages of well production. In other words, by measuring the wells operating parameters continuously and measuring certain well parameters (like casing pressure draw down and/or surges in line pressure from opening the well), the empirical model derived therefrom may provide more accurate control of turn on criteria of the well than conventional approaches, such as during the mature production stage of production of the well.
