Almost 40 percent of Americans live in the 50-mile emergency zones around nuclear power plants, according to the AP’s analysis of 2010 Census data.

Case for Accelerating Dry Cask Storage of Spent Nuclear Fuel

 Welcome!

For the safety of our citizens, communities hosting nuclear power plants can no longer wait for the empty promises of the federal government to build a national repository for our nuclear waste. Not when our communities are being turned in to long-term nuclear waste dump sites with highly radioactive, crowded spent fuel pools. By the federal government’s own admission it will take decades to site and construct a national repository for nuclear waste.

It’s why you’re invited to join our Coalition of Nuclear Communities. Together, we can be a strong, loud voice advocating for safer storage of onsite nuclear waste storage in our communities. If the U.S. government won’t act, we must.
Members
Objective:
 To advocate for robust, safety measures at nuclear power plants for the protection and peace of mind of citizens of the 64 communities in 31 states with 104 nuclear power plants that are now, in essence, long-term nuclear waste storage facilities.

This advocacy initially would take the form of lobbying U.S. Congressmen and Senators to pass legislation to amend the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982 and require the federal government to pay for the building of onsite dry cask storage units at nuclear power plants and the transference of all spent fuel rods older than 5 years into these hardened storage caskets.
Coalition Actions:

As a strong national alliance, we will use our collective and synergistic voices to speak loudly and act decisively to obtain the following goals:

 

Ø  To pass federal legislation amending the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982 to allow taxpayer money in the Nuclear Waste Fund to be used to fund the immediate construction of  local, on-site dry cask storage units in all nuclear power plants across the country who request said funding.

 

Ø  To persuade the NRC to change its current risk assessment that there is no difference in safety risk between storing spent fuel rods in dry cask or pools to a recommendation that spent fuel rods older than five years should be placed in dry cask storage to enhance security and safety at nuclear power plants.

 

Ø To ensure that ALL cooled spent fuel rods are placed into dry cask storage within years and NOT decades as proposed by the Blue Ribbon Commission on American Nuclear Future.

 

Ø  To support long-term used-fuel storage solutions to permanently remove spent fuel rods from local, on-site storage.

 

Ø  To establish responsible, national standard safety solutions that impact host communities, such as: implement meteorological monitors, develop a workable evacuation plan in case of emergency and protect against environmental disasters and terrorist attacks.
