Activist Warns Of Potential Dangers From Nuke Waste Storage In Illinois


A nuclear watchdog group says the federal government's delay in picking a permanent site to store the country's nuclear waste is creating a potential hazard… and some of the proposals for dealing with the problem could instead make it worse. 

 

David Kraft with the Nuclear Energy Information Service, a nuclear energy watchdog group, says that Illinois is already storing 9,000 tons of spent radioactive waste at its various nuclear power plants. Now some reports indicate that Illinois could be a prime spot for a proposed centralized interim storage site, meaning more spent fuel could be on its way. 

 

Kraft says that could mean additional possible dangers in transporting the hazardous waste to that interim site, and then perhaps moving it again later.  He encourages the public to attend a public meeting with the Nuclear Regulatory Committee November 12th in the Chicago suburb of Oak Brook.
