San Onofre: "It's Just That Broken"
|San Onofre Radiation Fallout Map|
The center of this Toxic Plume is located approximately 5 miles southeast of San Clemente, California. This plume is produced by 2 reactors located at the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant site. The reactors that produce this plume have 2,150 Mega Watts of radiation generating power. There is a total of 1,241 tons of Highly Toxic Radioactive spent fuel stored at this Nuclear Power Plant. The heavy vibrations caused by the enormous Radiation Producing Machines known as Nuclear Power Plants cracks in holding tanks and pools and breaks in welds on pipes carrying Radioactive Materials. The communities around the San Onofre Radiation Producing Machine found this out the hard way. When the Radioactive Debris from the demolition of Unit 1 was cleared away it revealed Radioactive Tritium contaminated soil under that unit. The level of contamination was up to 16.5 times the allowable levels. This unit probably leaked Radioactive Tritium into the local groundwater for most of its 25 plus years of troubled life.
