Activists in Portsmouth ask that Nuke Waste not be on Piketon Site; Plutonium Missing?

Updated 4 weeks ago

Community members assembled in Portsmouth, Ohio, to discuss the nuke waste dump planned for a portion of the Gaseous Diffusion Plant property

The Department of Energy wants to use the site for nuclear waste storage, but it sets near the Teays Aquifier and in a very "wet" region where heavy rains increase leeching of contamination. The aquifer runs through Huntington, WV.

Classified radioactive waste from the demolition of the Huntington (WV) Pilot Plant which was on the InCO campus and ran by the Atomic Energy Commission are buried on the Piketon property.

More than one attendee reported a "fire" had taken place at the plant, but had not been reported.
