Where can I find information including pictures and or videos about the problems at Hanford in Washington state?

The June 21, 1993 issue of Chemical and Engineering news, published by the American Chemical Society, featured Hanford and the challenge of cleaning up the mess out there. The article deals mainly with new technologies being developed, but describes the various problems and difficulties in finding solutions quite well. There are some pictures but to me ground contaminated with carbon tetrachloride does not look much different from normal ground. The pictures of some of the tanks full of waste are interesting, however.
