Time is running out to tell the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) we oppose hauling dangerous, high-level nuclear waste across the country to Texas for “interim” storage.
The NRC proposes to license a Consolidated ‘Interim’ Storage (CIS) facility for nuclear power high level waste in Andrews County, Texas. Building this so-called ‘interim’ site would require hauling dangerous, high-level nuclear waste all over the country twice: Once to the ‘interim’ site, then once again to a permanent site—if that is ever built. If the permanent site is not built, the ‘interim’ site could become a de-facto permanent storage site. Communities in West Texas and surrounding areas would become the latest sacrifice to the nuclear industry along with all the neighborhoods along the transport routes.
We have one last chance to flood the NRC with comments on their inadequate Draft Environmental Impact Statement on this dangerous proposal. The deadline for comments is Tuesday, November 3rd.. Tell the NRC and your members of Congress to say NO to the CIS facility in Texas.
