South Carolina Area Savannah River Site (SRS) Nuclear Reservation Leaked
On December 2, 2018, at the Savannah River Site (SRS) reprocessing plant, rainwater breached the roof and resulted in a hot spot on the floor. Clean areas of the plant were compromised. This is the second time this has happened with this area of the roof. Concern is growing that a large radiation event could happen at H-Canyon, especially due to earthquake.
SRS Watch is asking DOE to report the statues of the rainwater.
There were no reports of workers being exposed to radiation.

The CDC states, "Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are the rapid growth of algae that can cause harm to animals, people, or the local ecology. A HAB can look like foam, scum, or mats on the surface of water and can be different colors. HABs can produce toxins that have caused a variety of illnesses in people and animals. HABs can occur in warm fresh, marine, or brackish waters with abundant nutrients and are becoming more frequent with climate change."
