Recommendations for temporary storage of Nuclear Waste at San Onofre

How long will SONGS  be a Nuclear Waste Dump? That answer is unclear at best. But for sure it will be here longer than anyone wants. So it will be safest and cheapest to store it right the first time! SCE and NRC love’s to say the risks are small, but they don’t like to tell us how BIG a nuclear waste accident can be.  Anyone remember Chernobyl and Fukushima?

ROSE advocates relocation of nuclear waste as soon as is feasible from the SONGS site to a less populated area and a less earthquake prone area. Temporary or permanent, although a permanent situation is preferred.

1. Storage of dry cask of any type should be within it’s own building to protect them from the salt air at San Onofre as some other countries do .

2. The best canister we have seen is the V-19 German canister. The V-19 and 21 canisters are an example of a better made product for our site at San Onofre. It is not meant to be a recommendation to buy, just the type of construction method we may want to look at.

3. There should be a fuel pool with crane on site to mitigate any accident with any of the dry casks.

4. There should be some type of pressure or radiation monitoring of cask in real time which the V-19 canister has.

5. NRC needs to update it’s procedures to include inspections of decommissioned cask storage areas on a regular and timely basis.

6. DOE needs to set a firm date as to when they will takeover SONGS nuclear waste and exactly how they will do that.

  1. no nuclear waste storage what so ever & the entire San Onofre plant site demolished & returned to natural beach-when the Chumash fished there. yep totally doable, fight for it!
