Description At Hanford, the geology below the ground's surface is very complicated. There are places where groundwater flows vertically and horizontally through sand and grave deposited by the ice age floods. This document provides information on the current state of groundwater contamination due to years of USDOE discharging waste to the ground, and methods for monitoring and cleaning up the groundwater.
