Drigg Safety Case 21/04/11

WORK aimed at proving the safety of the UK’s designated low-level radioactive waste disposal site is complete. LLWR at Drigg needs a new permit in order to continue operating the site for many years ahead. The ball will be set rolling next month when an all-embracing safety case is submitted to the Environment Agency. But it will take two years for the Agency to go through all the work with a fine tooth comb. Until then the site can operate under its present authorisation but a new permit is crucial for the future. It is not expected before May 2013.
