Terrific Ground Water Pollution in SC Made Worse by 2018 Hurricanes – Entire Southeast Probably the Same

27 10 2018

In looking at flooding conditions and nuke plants threatened by hurricanes Florence and Michael we came across this 2004 Westinghouse SC nuke plant document on the environment around the plant.

The amount of contamination all around from fecal waste, zinc and other toxic chemicals and pesticides from farms is shown in the 14 year old survey. Those problems are probably much worse before the storms hit. The report was filed with the NRC  in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act.

With this amount of industrial and farm waste how could South Carolina, or the affected southeast states handle massive new contamination from flooded refineries, chemical plants, nuke “processing facilities”, hog farms (some of the biggest factory farms in the country) untreated sewage, poultry farms and pesticide stockpiles?

Imagine the health effects waiting down the road for the inhabitants who are drinking this stuff and who waded through it and let their children play in it. 

A look at the environmental report shows they had studied hurricane risk and storm flooding and the state and federal government took no action. Had this report been read by just about anybody they could see the contamination situation would be unimaginable if there was widespread flooding from deluge storms or hurricanes.

 

  Manuregeddon!
Almost 9 MILLION hogs in NC in the path of mega-hurricane!

 

Columbia Fuel Operations gets a lengthy letter after uranium mess was minimized (lied about) and poor interim V.P. had to endure reading it.

Public hearing on this November 8th – I think it’s the 8th, maybe the 9th. It’s shortly after the elections. There is apparently no evacuation zone though there is an 1100 acre buffer area and it is 8 miles from the capital of SC.

Former SC Gov Nikki Haley had to step down from UN Amb because of apparent corruption and so tied to nuclear industry through both campaign donations and family friend-kinsman Kris Singh of Holtec. Holtec has NJ machine pol Norcross on its board of directors. Norcross also connected to MD Anderson Cancer Center. Norcross a member of Trump club at Mar a Lago and Norcross is the one poisoning the Dems while Singh poisons the Republicans.

Forgot to say that one of the questionable flights Nikki got was to the Aiken which is near the Savannah River nuclear site. Don’t know if it was near her home or why.
