DOE's SRS returning H-Canyon reprocessing facilities to full operability

As reported by World Nuclear News, the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Savannah River Site (SRS) is returning its H-Canyon reprocessing facilities to full operability.

This comes as DOE, along with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, U.S. Department of Transportation, and other agencies, have signed off on up to 150 truckloads of highly radioactive liquid waste, traveling from Chalk River nuclear labs in Ontario, to SRS, beginning as early as September 2016.
