“The Permian Basin: A Dump for all of America’s High Level Nuclear Waste?”

Tommy Taylor

Director of Oil and Gas Development at Fasken Oil and Ranch, Ltd.

Holtec International Corporation and Orano-Waste Control Specialists have submitted applications for permits with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to construct two sites in the Permian Basin (located in Andrews County and Lea and Eddy Counties) as interim storage locations for all of the United States’ high level nuclear power plant waste. “Interim” is defined as 40-100 years and the amount they anticipate storing here is 463,000,000 lbs. of the most toxic substance known to mankind. The political leaders of Andrews, TX, Hobbs, NM and Carlsbad, NM purport that their communities are in favor of bring this waste to this region and that the waste it is completely “benign”.   I believe it is important to understand exactly what waste is contained in these 21,000 containers and why one would want to call it “benign”. It is a very real possibility that all of this waste will travel through Midland and Odessa via the railroads.
