More Info: Stop Nuke Dump



San Diego (2019-03-12) -- Citizens' Oversight, the organization that sued the Coastal Commission and Southern California Edison to stop the use of the coastal facility only 100 feet from the ocean and move the waste to a safer place, today sent a letter to the six-member expert team which was formed nearly a year ago as the result of the settlement agreement reached in 2017.

This letter
  • asks for the status of the expert team,
  • requests a review of the canister drop mishap,
  • broaches the possibility of using a new "deep borehole" option,
  • and makes note of the new CASTOR cask system, which appears to be compliant with the dual-wall design concept as raised in the HELMS proposal.

It is our hope that Southern California Edison will provide answers to these specific questions regarding the serious nature of the nuclear waste storage so close to the ocean.
