A sinkhole has been confirmed in a tank farm at the Hanford Site. A Washington River Protection Solutions spokesperson told NBC Right Now over the phone that the opening at the surface in the SX Tank Farm is one and a half to two feet wide. There is no estimate on the depth of the sinkhole. Workers discovered it yesterday morning, and work was immediately stopped. Right now, they’re investigating. Plans are to put a camera down the hole, and put a camera into a nearby tank to check out the integrity.
