After celebrating the final defeat of North Carolina’s 12-year effort to license an ill-conceived seven-state nuclear waste dump, NC WARN has been working with the NC Radiation Protection Commission to help craft state policy for the long-term management of “low-level” radioactive waste. The RPC was instructed to make a recommendation to the NC General Assembly in May of 2000. We’re happy to report that “No dump” is the recommendation — at least for now.
Since the early 1990s, NC WARN has watch-dogged the state’s nuclear power industry over its “low-level” and high-level waste practices, along with reactor safety and security issues.
