Yeah I'll admit I didnt really think about that. It makes sense though risking being by a river for better chances at damage control.


It would make sense to place by a consistent source of water. Indeed cooling the reactor would be a safety priority.
But a nuclear waste dump by a large river?


Didn't it have an operational plant at one point?

Also, just off the top of my head... what about river transport of waste to the site?


The Columbia generating station onsite is still in operation.

It's a Boiling Water design kinda like Fukishima.

The Columbia River is used as a cooling water source for the facilities, the river itself is not navigatable for commercial shipping.

You would think that with some of the millions of dollars spent, uncle Sam would have dredged the river to make it navigable.

ETA; Hey Randy, how have you been? I remember when I was stationed at Edwards AFB, we used to converse alot through ATS.
I remember flying over your area and seeing a traffic accident (or fire), and later typing to you about it here on ATS (or maybe it's a Mandela thing).
Geez, that was back in 2005 or 6 I think.

I was wrong about the river not being navigatable.

Looks like it's used to ship in radioactive waste.

OK, this is weird. It says that we both joined in 2009. But I was at Buckley AFB.
I distinctly remember my apartment in Lancaster and the viper I was assigned to.
I remember flying over I-15 near 395.
And that was 2005 or 2006. WTF.

Well you see my good man the answer is very simple, rational and logical!

See I've always been secretly envious and even sometimes jealous at
never being involved in any way with the mandela effect. Your psychic
perceptions were keen today, allowing you to see that in my first reply
mentioning candles and oil lamps. Thus your reply mentioning Mandela
in connection with your abilities at an elevated level effected greatly
our interlocking timespace continuum leaving our shared memories
intact and now I have no rational choice other than the complete denial
of this entire conversation and scream @#$% this!

THIS IS NOT HAPPENING I DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU MAN!

This so off topic

Authorities at Washington state's Hanford nuclear waste site are investigating a possible leak after discovering radioactive material on a worker's clothing. The discovery follows an incident early last week in which a site tunnel collapsed, sparking fears of radiation exposure.

Washington River Protection Solutions, a contractor working at the site, on Thursday detected high readings of radiation on a robotic device known as a crawler that workers were pulling out of a nuclear waste tank. Contamination was also discovered on the clothing of one of the workers. "Established decontamination procedures were followed, which involves removing the




We are not aware of any nuclear waste leaking outside the AZ-101 double-shelled tank, but we expect the US Department of Energy to immediately investigate and report on the source of contamination," Gov. Jay Inslee said in a statement.


This is not good news for the site. Hope they can find the leak and get it taken care of.
