The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Sellafield nuclear processes trashing the River Hehen, home to endangered fresh water pearl mussels.

Scisco Media 23rd Sept 2017, The domestic supply of fresh water from Ennerdale to West Cumbrians is to
cease by 2022. This is (so the official narrative goes) to safeguard water levels on the River Ehen flowing from Ennerdale Water that provides a “delicate habitat” for one of the last populations of endangered fresh water pearl mussels.

The enormous sums of money and effort to save the pearl mussels are meaningless while the integrity of the River Ehen is
being trashed by the nuclear industry. The volumes of fresh water abstraction from the River Ehen by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority for Sellafield’s cooling and processing is staggering (remember they take
four million gallons daily from Wastwater as well as other sources too).
