The Department of Energy has authorized its environmental cleanup contractors at the Hanford nuclear reservation to lay off as many as 1,100 more workers in the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1, 2011. That’s in addition to up to 1,985 layoffs already announced this year, the majority of which will occur Sept. 29, 2011.

The 1,100 layoffs will start with up to 475 workers at the Hanford tank farms, a project of Washington River Protection Solutions.
