U.S Court of Appeals upholds rule on nuclear waste storage

 


The Prairie Island Indian Community was disappointed yet again in their quest to rid the island of spent nuclear fuel as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia on Friday upheld a 2014 ruling allowing the continual onsite storage of the radioactive material.

Prairie Island Indian Community joined several states and environmental agencies to appeal the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Continued Storage Rule, which was rejected, and it was concluded nuclear waste can be stored onsite indefinitely.
