With a nuclear waste dump, will the town of Kimba have to change its name?

Paul Waldon  Fight to stop a nuclear waste dump in South Australia, 2 Feb 21 

The residential area of Lucas Heights was renamed Barden Ridge in 1996 in an attempt to evade the stigma associated with ANSTO. Will this tactic be repeated halfway across Australia at Kimba for the same reason.
If so, what about the name “Centralia.” Sounds like it fits geographically and I believe it’s a good logical choice.
Keep in mind there is already a town in Pennsylvania with the same name that had similar parallels to Kimba and may do so again one day. “Centralia,” a regional town, a town which had a population on par with that of Kimba, but sadly it has been reduced to about 5 residents, it’s a place where road surfaces have reach temperatures of 480 degrees celsius, a place where poisonous toxins are purging from the ground and will continue to do so for many generations.
However I have to mention, the American government did step in and purchased their shit town, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on the Australian government doing the same, even though a farmer come nuclear profiteer has already sold out.
