Environmental and flooding dangers to planned Flinders Ranges nuclear waste dump

Extract from Flinders University and Army expedition on the flooding of the land proposed for the Intermediate Level Radioactive Nuclear Waste Depot at Wallerberdina Flinders Ranges. Link also below.

“The water level and major ion content of the floodwaters in Lake Torrens were measured over the duration of the flood (March–December 1989), and the volume flow and major ion content of the flood in the Pirie-Torrens corridor which discharged into Spencer Gulf at Port Augusta and peaked on 17th March 1989 were recorded.…/abs/10.…/03721426.2015.1065467 

Standing only a few kilometres away from the proposed nuclear radioactive waste dump, with the magnificence of the Flinders all around us, was eery and beyond comprehension.

The inevitable nuclear waste containment failure resulting in a spill and speepage, will be catastrophic for the water table in this area and the Spencer Gulf. Senator Matthew CanavanDavid RidgwaySenator Rex Patrick Steven Marshall Grain Producers SA Port Lincoln Times Port Lincoln Tunarama Kangaroo Island Questions, Notices & Discussions No Radioactive Waste Facility for Kimba District ABC North and West ABC Eyre Peninsula Anti-Nuclear Coalition South Australia Friends of the Earth Australia Conservation Council of South Australia Australian Conservation Foundation Adnyamathanha Traditional Lands Association RNTBC ARA Merna Mora Station International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)
