ALL nuclear reactors release radioactivity into their cooling water sources and the atmosphere.

How is this news?

How is it funny?

Fair point but should you get thirsty I would not recommend drinking any of the stuff considering its effect on the Human body.

That's just an ludicrus idea, how in the world would anyone be able to make such a gigantic kilt. Very unlikely.

Seriously, though. Why not make nuclear plants way inland for once to prevent these kinds of things.

Maybe I should of said 'I'm thankful it wasn't worse'. I wasn't trying to sound dismissive but there wasn't much info on the scale of this leak in the op.

And it's only about an hour away from me so not too far from my 'yard'

a reply to: loveguyDSRL) said "procedural non-compliances and behavioural practices" by staff led to the incident on 7 October.

DSRL said trace amounts of tritium were released and did not pose a risk to the public.

No-one at the plant was hurt in the early morning incident.

The Caithness site's fire brigade extinguished the blaze in the PFR's sodium tank farm within 30 minutes.

Managing director Mark Rouse said DSRL has been served with an improvement notice by the nuclear industry's regulators.

He said: "Our investigation identified unacceptable behaviours and practices that fell well short of our values and standards.

"It is important to take the time to ensure as many lessons are learned from this incident as possible.

"We are determined to improve our behaviours and compliance to ensure that we always meet the high standards expected

Maybe because civilians blow these things way out of proportion, and they wanted to make sure they knew exactly what was going on before the civilian populace blows it out of proportion and when the data proves it less or worse than previously thought the populace will attack those who reported for incompetence.
