Nuclear Waste Disposal

Scottish Nuclear Waste Dumped On Public Land
15 January 2006

SUNDAY HERALD (NORTH AYRSHIRE)—Scottish investigators are looking into the risks to public health and safety posed by secret radioactive waste dumps on the North Ayrshire, Scotland coast. Five publicly accessible shoreline pits contain thousands of cubic meters of contaminated rubbish from Hunterston nuclear power plant. Accidental destruction of the official papers detailing the pits contests has aroused suspicion. Recent monitoring of the Ayrshire foreshore has uncovered unexpectedly high levels of radioactivity, and there are mounting concerns that the pits could be eroded or flooded by the rising sea levels caused by global warming. The five pits are on reclaimed land outside the perimeter fence of the Hunterston, a nuclear site near West Kilbride, Scotland. The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, the government agency that is now overseeing the nuclear clean-up, says the pits contain about 6500 cubic meters of low-level radioactive waste, including contaminated soil, rubble and concrete dumped between 1977 and 1982.

Comment: This is the second nuclear waste mishap at Hunterston in recent years. In October of 2004 it was determined that leaks from Hunterston had contaminated a huge area of land. Radioactivity laced some 81,000 cubic meters of soil that for years had been spilling from pipelines and blowing off open-air ponds of nuclear waste. Image Source: pwrmaps/map/united_kingdom.png
