As reported by Gregg Levine and Caroline Preston in The New Yorker.

The article discusses on-site storage of irradiated nuclear fuel, in indoor "wet" pools and outdoor dry casks, as at Entergy Nuclear's Pilgrim atomic reactor near Boston.

The article quotes Beyond Nuclear: One option is consolidated interim storage. Under this plan, the spent fuel would be moved from plants in thirty states to a handful of regional, aboveground storage facilities—what Kevin Kamps, a waste specialist at the watchdog Beyond Nuclear, has called “parking-lot dumps.”
