No clean-up of nuclear leak in South Carolina for years via The News & Observer

Federal regulators say the Westinghouse Electric Company has no plans to clean uranium leaks at a nuclear fuel plant despite evidence that it could reach South Carolina’s water supply.

Instead, Westinghouse wants a new 40-year extension from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, even though there’s nearly a decade left on its current license.

The nuclear plume is under the plant and can’t be cleaned until the fuel factory closes. A new license would delay cleanup until 2058 or later.
