RICHLAND, Wash. (AP) - A more than $24 million subcontract has been awarded to a small business to do electrical work at the contaminated nuclear site in Washington state.

The Tri-City Herald reported Wednesday that American Electric in Richland will work to maintain and improve electrical infrastructure over a year at the Hanford tank farms.

The site has 179 underground tanks storing radioactive waste from nuclear weapons production.

U.S. Department of Energy contractor Washington River Protection Solutions awarded the contract.

American Electric will be tasked with trenching, laying conduit, pulling wire, putting up structural steel, installing equipment and pouring concrete.
