A radioactive waste specialist, Kevin Kamps, says the condition of the high-level radioactive waste storage pools at the Fukushima-Daiichi reactors remain dangerous. Another big earthquake could prompt a sudden drain-down of the Unit 4 high-level radioactive waste storage pool.
Kamps also says few lessons from Fukushima have been learned in the U.S. One of the most important being that high density U.S. pools should be emptied into hardened on-site storage as soon as possible. This being before the worst could happen whether due to an earthquake or a potential terrorist attack.
Scientists say that very low levels of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster are now about to reach ocean waters along the US West Coast next month. But it will not be at levels dangerous to humans or wildlife. They are calling for more monitoring as no federal agency currently samples Pacific Coast seawater for radiation.
