Hundreds of thousands of tons of solid nuclear waste and millions of gallons of liquid nuclear waste are stored in open storage facilities across the United States.
Spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste are currently stored in temporary facilities at 129 sites in 39 states. These storage sites are located in cities, suburbs, and rural areas. Most are located near large bodies of water.
An estimated 161 million people reside within 75 miles of temporarily stored nuclear waste."

Justice Claims and Bid for Licensing Hearing to Site New Reactor Unit at Grand Gulf
PORT GIBSON, Miss. - In a blow to environmental justice principles, a federal licensing board of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has denied four environmental, public interest and civil rights organizations entrance into a licensing hearing on Entergy's application to site a new nuclear reactor in Mississippi under the agency's new streamlined licensing proceedings.
The licensing board denied all of the groups' criticisms, or "contentions," about an Entergy Nuclear application for a permit to site at least one new nuclear reactor near its existing Grand Gulf Unit 1 reactor in Port Gibson, Mississippi. The proposed reactor would be located in Claiborne County, with an 84% African American population and 32% of its residents living at or below the poverty line.
"As part of the NuStart Energy Development consortium, Entergy announced last week it is applying for $400 million from the government to help prepare a combined construction and operating license for a future nuclear reactor. "
Michoud Plant Wildlife Inspection (Entergy New Orleans)
In March 2004, agents of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service conducted an inspection of Entergy New Orleans' Michoud power plant and found a number of dead brown pelicans near the facility's water intake structure and fish-return trough.

There actually seems to be two different restricted airspace (aka nuclear) areas, at two different locations for the Waterford III plant.
That one in the photo above is located far off from the flooded/seriously damaged area near Lake Ponchartrain. The picture of the reactor above is the main location closer to Baton Rouge protected by acres and acres of land.
If you look at the airspace maps for the Waterford III plant there seem to be two different restricted airspace locations for Waterford III.
Site I - This is where the main reactor is located from the photo posted above. The main reactor (only reactor?) is located here which is a good distance from the majority of the flooded area near the superdome.
Site II - Interested in this restricted airspace for Waterford III plant near the populated city & majority of damage/flooding. Could this be where the spent fuel is located off-site?

I will update this in just a moment with all info., links, etc.
#6 & #10 on the Chemical Map are the NORCO SHELL company.
I have a lot of data here, but it looks like they may have been storing
Waterfords Spent Fuel there. They have history of spent fuel storage.
Am I good or am I good?
Excuse my poor photoshop drawing skills, I was trying to draw attention to the locations.
