The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Nuclear power’s impact on water resources

nuke-tapWater & the nuclear fuel cycle  Nuclear Monitor Newsletter Feature: Water & The Nuclear Fuel Cycle WISE/NIRS Nuclear Monitor #770, October 2013  This issue of the Monitor focuses on the nuclear industry’s contribution to unsustainable water consumption and water pollution. We look at the impacts of nuclear power reactors including their huge water consumption and impacts on aquatic life. We briefly consider the impacts of other stages of the nuclear fuel cycle on water resources. And we have longer articles on climate-related problems as water sources dwindle and heat up, and the related topic of flooding of nuclear plants. http://www.wiseinternational.org/sites/default/files/images/NM770-water-24Oct2013.pdf
