Radioactive contamination could leak from nuclear waste dump into Great Lakes, physicist/engineer admits
As re-posted by CTV, the AP has reported on resistance against Ontario Power Generation's proposed Deep Geologic Repository for radioactive waste on the shoreline of the Great Lakes.
As the article reports:
Charles Rhodes, an engineer and physicist, contended seeping groundwater would fill the chamber in as little as a year, become contaminated and eventually reach the lake through tiny cracks in the rock.
"It's only a question of how long, and how toxic it will be when it gets there," he said in an interview.
