Activists Plead With Local, State Officials To Prevent Radioactive Waste From Being Buried At San Onofre via CBS Local

SAN CLEMENTE (CBSLA) — Southern Orange County residents pleaded with the San Clemente City Council Tuesday night to urge the California Coastal Commission to stop Southern California Edison from burying 3.6 million pounds of radioactive waste on the beach.

Activists were begging the commission to cancel a permit that allows Edison to store spent nuclear fuel rods from the closed San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station at the beach.

“Just tell the Coastal Commission to take the conditions that they put 20 years out and move them up to today where they belong,” said activist Gary Headrick.

It’s one of the last battles those living close to the nuclear power plant have to fight.

If the Coastal Commission doesn’t rescind the permit to bury the spent fuel rods, neighbors said Edison will start loading canisters with radioactive waste early next year.

“This is a paramount and critical moment in history of our lives and the future lives of our children and grandchildren,” said San Clemente resident Tom Gudauskas.

CThe City Council will not vote on whether to even draft a letter to the Coastal Commission until the next meeting in May.
