Nuclear Waste in South Carolina: An Issue Brief for Citizens

In 1997 Dr. Mary T. Kelly, a chemist and Natural Resources Director for the League of Women Voters of South Carolina, authored a ground-breaking document "The Aging of the Nuclear State: A Survey of South Carolina's Nuclear Utilities", that described the nuclear industry in South Carolina. Dr. Kelly wanted to uncover the facts and particularly to focus public attention on the leaking tanks of neglected high-level waste at what is now called the Savannah River Site (SRS). The purpose of this updated Issue Brief is to carry forward Mary's legacy to inform the public about current nuclear affairs in South Carolina and increase understanding of this critical public health, environmental and economic issue for our state.
