»Hanford's Dirty Secrets: Sunday at 5:00 p.m. only on KIMA Action News

HANFORD, Wash. -- For months now the KING 5 Investigators have exposed a Hanford contractor that may be putting your safety at risk. Action News is teaming up with KING 5 Seattle to dig deeper into Hanford's dirty secrets.

Much of it surrounds a leaking double-shell tank that's full of some of the most dangerous waste at the site. Most recently it was discovered that tank is likely leaking into the soil.

Investigators learned how concerns about this particular tank were disregarded for nearly a year before being addressed, how bonus money was still being paid out and how the state plans to take action on this tank.
