Federal judge greenlights unprecedented, high-risk, highly radioactive liquid waste truck shipments from Ontario to South Carolina, for reprocessing
[Please note: this scheme is at its core a pro-reprocessing effort by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). DOE's last reprocessing capability is at the H-Canyon at the nuclear weapons complex at Savannah River Site, in South Carolina. SRS will be paid $60 million, by Canadian authorities, for this "service."]
Press release by environmental coalition, including Beyond Nuclear, re: judge's adverse ruling, allowing unprecedented, high-risk, highly radioactive liquid waste truck shipments from Chalk River Nuclear Lab, Ontario, Canada to Savannah River Site, South Carolina, U.S.A. (See the judge's 18-page Memorandum Opinion, and 1-page Order of Dismissal, both dated Feb. 2, 2017.) Terry Lodge of Toledo, Ohio and Diane Curran of Washington, D.C. serve as the environmental coalition's legal counsel.
