Kimba and Hawker could be stuck with Intermediate Level nuclear wastes for hundreds of years

Are the people of Kimba and Hawker aware that their area could be stuck with what is called “Intermediate Level” wastes for hundreds of years – permanently ruining the area’s agricultural and tourism reputation? 


Intermediate Level Waste, generated from reprocessing spent fuel rods, is 100K to 100M times more radioactive than granite and can take more than 100 thousand years to return to natural levels.

The only safe disposal of Intermediate and High Level waste requires geologic and social stability for hundreds of thousands of years.
