A duplicitous letter from Sam Chard, General Manager, Radioactive Waste Taskforce

 

What a duplicitous letter  from Sam Chard!

She says “A separate facility, likely a deeply geological one, will be found for the permanent disposal of the intermediate-level waste, but that’s a few decades off.”
So where is this intermediate-level waste to go, in the meantime? –      to become stranded nuclear wastes at Wallerberdina or Kimba.

Nuclear assurance, by SAM CHARD, NRWMF taskforce general manager

I WRITE in response to the letter from Michele Madigan (“Nuclear vote”, The Advertiser, 11/11/19).

The National Radioactive Waste Management Facility will be for the permanent disposal of low-level waste, and temporary storage of intermediate-level waste.

A separate facility, likely a deeply geological one, will be found for the permanent disposal of the intermediate-level waste, but that’s a few decades off.

The transport of waste will be conducted safely, and examples in France and the UK demonstrate such a facility can coexist with a clean, green image and a successful export industry.

In the recent Kimba community ballot, more than 61 per cent of local residents supported hosting the facility, and now a ballot is under way for residents near Wallerberdina Station.

Traditional owner, neighbour, and business consultation is also being undertaken, and anyone else with an interest can make a submission
