Nuclear water leaks into N.J. aquifer

State agency calls for stopping flow


Tritium leaks have been reported in other nuclear plants


Salem reported a tritium leak some time ago. I questioned NRC  and State officials about the matter and was told that the leak was confined ON SITE and is now under control.


It is understandable, as these plants age, underground pipes corrode. Yet, half the plants operating now have been granted a license renewal for another 20 years. (none have been refused).


These license renewals not only invite further corrosion of underground pipes  but also subject the material to embrittlement. A process by which metals, and  high-strength steel become brittle and fracture..There was a good reason for limiting the operation of these plants to only 40 years.


Trust us say the officials. Do You ?
