Description

Estimates indicate the number of 55-gallon carbon steel drums, storing various waste forms, total in the millions and are distributed in localized waste storage sites all across the US. Other nations are expected to have similar situations as well. Figure 1 shows steel drums in a burial trench at Hanford. Each Government site working on radioactive weapons production store their drums differently but each site is beginning to experience problems with leaking drums.
