Borehole Burial Nuke Waste

Borehole Burial Nuke Waste

In this photo provided by the U.S. Department of Energy, cesium and strontium capsules are stored in water at the Department of Energy’s Hanford site in Washington State. The Department of Energy is planning to conduct a field test of a borehole that goes 3.1 miles beneath the surface to explore the potential of using boreholes to store certain energy department high-level radioactive waste. Other wastes could come from DOE’s Idaho National Laboratory and the Savannah River site in South Carolina. (U.S. Department of Energy via AP)
