Transportation of nuclear waste: complications of siting a nuclear waste repository.

G. Jabob, Andrew Kirby

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Two contradictory goals will continue to produce conflict over the appropriate course of the civilian nuclear waste disposal program: the primary concerns of communities along the transportation corridor are health, public safety, the maintenance of property values and protecting their jusisdictions' authority to impose regulations felt necessary to serve these ends. The DOE is interested in rushing development of a repository as much as possible to meet an accelerated waste acceptance schedule, and to provide the nuclear industry with a solution to the spent fuel problem.-from Authors
