Nuclear Sites Fear they're the Alternative to Yucca Mountain

This article expresses the concerns of the nuclear waste depositories in the discussion following the recent shut down of Yucca Mountain. Hopefully, with the new TPA milestones, the ban on bringing new waste to Hanford will be upheld.

However, the problem remains: what to do with the 14,000 tons of highly radioactive waste that was destined for Yucca Mountain?

  1. Let's keep the waste away from Hanford! But... this op/ed in the Tacoma News Tribune hints that since there is no Plan B after Yucca Mountain, Hanford will become the default dumping ground.
