Get the Facts on High-Level Atomic Waste Storage Casks!

Recently came across this Fact Sheet from NIRS (Nuclear Information and Resource Service) about Dry Casks. Very interesting read. Most of it is directly applicable to the dry cask storage project planned for Pilgrim. It outlines some of the history behind why casks were developed, what the concerns are, problems with the permitting process,  etc. It’s from 2004 (before Yucca Mountain was cancelled) but still relevant.
