Ohio: Scientists Sound Alarm on Nuclear Plant


  • Ohio: Scientists Sound Alarm on Nuclear Plant

    A watchdog group is questioning the soundness of a nuclear plant where a 30-foot hairline crack was recently discovered. The crack was found in the thick concrete on the outside of the reactor containment building at the Davis-Besse plant outside Toledo. Further inspections found numerous, tiny cracks on the building’s facade.

    webmasters comment:

    whats the difference between a "hairline" and a tiny crack? The building is obviously cracked all over. 30 foot crack, no matter how thin, will not only become thicker but it indicates a bigger structural problem, most probably sinking foundations.

    Note that the previous reactor head was also cracked and now they are just placing a new 82 ton head in this crippled building.
