2017 - 09 - 22 CPUC should order more storage for Diablo Canyon nuclear waste

The California Public Utilities Commission has a great opportunity in its oversight of Diablo Canyon’s closure. PG&E must store 2,000 tons of highly radioactive nuclear waste on a fault-ridden coastline. Currently, the waste in the dry cask storage is sealed in half-inch thick stainless steel canisters inside concrete overpacking affixed to huge concrete slabs, easily visible from the air and sea.
