Seismic concerns under Hanford Nuclear Plant
In just the last three years alone Sherrod and his colleagues have found evidence for what are likely three newly-recognized active faults around Yakima, and even more elsewhere in the state.

“We may have structures here that are actually more active than what we thought in the past, "said Steve Reidel, who was a Hanford geologist for 30 years and now teaches at Washington State University, Tri-Cities.

On March 10, only a day before the Tohoku quake, Energy Northwest received the latest in a series of letters from the NRC questioning the sufficiency of calculations the company used to inform its cost-benefit analysis of earthquake impact mitigations. A July 1 2010 letter, meanwhile, reveals NRC's concern that Energy Northwest used old seismic hazard analyses to measure ground-shaking, despite more recent studies of earthquake hazards, like ones done by the USGS or the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for projects related to the cleanup effort at nearby Hanford.
