The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Hinkley Mud still needs more testing for radiation

Richard Bramhall, Secretary of the Level Radiation Campaign. Tomorrow the
Senedd will debate a petition calling for an Environmental Impact
Assessment (EIA) to be undertaken ahead of any further dredged material
from Hinkley Point being disposed of at the Cardiff Grounds disposal site.


This is taking centre stage as Electricité de France (EDF) seeks a licence
to dredge huge amounts of mud from the Severn Estuary and dump it on a
shallow sandbank less than two miles from Cardiff.

The Environment (Wales) Act 2016 requires decision-makers to take great care and to consult widely
when there are uncertainties. We argue that there are large uncertainties
about how many uranium oxide fragments are in the mud, and about where they
would go if dumped on Cardiff Grounds, how much genetic damage they would
do to the population of Wales and whether the people who must make the
licensing decisions understand the relevant science.
