Likely areas of Wales to be targeted for nuclear waste dumping

Dumping England’s nuclear mud in Wales

most lethal nuclear waste

Here’s what the Government’s geologists had to say about the area in which you live, Wales Online By Nathan Bevan, 10 FEB 2019 

Meetings are to be held in Wales next month as part of the search for a site in which to bury the country’s most dangerous radioactive waste.

People in two areas – Swansea and Llandudno – are to be consulted as part of the Government-run Radioactive Waste Management’s hunt for “a willing host community” where the lethal stockpile can be buried hundreds of metres underground over decades to come.

There are also meetings in eight areas of England as the government hunts for a single location to bury the lethal waste.

The waste, which has been accumulating from nuclear power stations over the last 60 years, is to be transferred from specially-engineered containers where it is currently building up to a subterranean Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) where it can be left forever.

The government’s official line is that no location has been chosen and that any site will only be picked if a community is willing.

Experts at the RWM (a subsidiary of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority) have been scouring Wales for suitable regions and this is what they have to say about the area in which you live:

1. North Wales offshore including the Vale of Clwyd……….

2. North Wales Coalfield, comprising Wrexham and north to Prestatyn…….

3. From St Brides Bay to the Severn Estuary, extending north to Welshpool……

4. 20 km offshore strip along the Bristol Channel – from Carmarthen Bay to Cardiff…..

5. Most of North Wales and West Wales – from  St Davids to Bangor……

6. Mostly offshore between St Davids and Caernarfon, with a small onshore area south of Harlech  ……. https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/parts-wales-being-looked-sites-15805907
