Nuclear Waste Resources

  • San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station closed in 2013. That’s good.

  • It has left behind 1,775 tons of high-level nuclear waste. That’s bad. 

  • They’re burying in thin-walled canisters at the beach. That’s really bad. 

  • When the storage canisters remain buried on-site site, they can corrode. San Onofre Nuclear could become the world’s worst environmental catastrophe.

San Onofre & Beyond

Nuclear waste storage at the closed San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station looms as one of the greatest environmental threats to public safety. SLF aims to create and support multi-faceted and multi-sectored collaboration to consider alternatives to the current system. SLF is determined to facilitate a consensus-building process that breaks through current barriers by synthesizing the research and expertise of global nuclear scientists and industry experts and engaging public officials, citizens, and activists to create informed solutions. By operating at the intersection of nuclear science, community engagement, and politics, SLF is cultivating a more positive climate for local, regional, and national collaboration nuclear energy issues.
