Odors reported near Hanford’s SX tank farm

Three Hanford workers declined precautionary medical evaluation this morning after reporting odors at the SX Farm change trailer. None of the workers reported symptoms.

The employees were performing routine surveys at the time of reported odors and were not in an area that requires use of a supplied air respirator. Workers were instructed to leave the area, and access to the area has been restricted.
