Feds Say FPL Can Store Nuclear Waste Below Miami's Drinking Water Because It's 'Not Likely' to Leak

Feds Say FPL Can Store Nuclear Waste Below Miami's Drinking Water Because It's 'Not Likely' to Leak | 21 July 2017 | Florida Power & Light's Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Station is already leaking dangerous salt water into the aquifers that are Miami's largest source of drinking water. Despite that alarming fact, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) recently ruled that FPL can move forward with a plan to build two new nuclear reactors and store nuclear waste -- including radioactive material -- in an area just below those same aquifers. Environmentalists warn a leak would threaten the water supply of 2.7 million people, but the feds last week ruled that such a leak is "not likely," and that even if one were to occur, it "would likely be detected and resolved prior to any significant release to the Upper Floridan Aquifer," one of Miami-Dade County's two water stores.
