IICPH was invited to join with the Sierra Club Niagara Group, Nuclear Information and Resource Services and the Women’s Indigenous Initiatives, at a press conference in Buffalo, NY on May 15, 2013 to inform the citizens of New York State of the DOE plan to ship HIGH LEVEL RADIOACTIVE LIQUID WASTE 1,000 miles across public roads and bridges in the U.S. and Canada. Atomic Energy Canada Limited (AECL) is planning to truck 23,000 liters of highly radioactive liquid waste from its Chalk River Laboratory (CRL) in Ontario to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Savannah River Site (SRS) in South Carolina. The shipments could begin this summer if approved by regulators in both countries. This radiotoxic liquid waste has resulted from using weapons-grade highly enriched uranium in Chalk River’s National Research Universal reactor for decades to produce radioactive isotopes. The waste contains numerous highly radioactive fission products such as cesium-137, iodine-129 and strontium-90.
