- Leap of faith: Blended waste rule makes no sense - Salt Lake Tribune Editorial
"‘No, no!’ said the Queen. ‘Sentence first — verdict afterwards.’"
Utah state regulators think it will take EnergySolutions a year to research, write and file a report on whether the company’s nuclear waste depository in Tooele County can safely handle a proposed influx of so-called blended waste from its processing plant in Tennessee.
Yet they aren’t waiting one day to allow the landfill to start receiving as much as 40,000 cubic feet of the stuff.
Maybe the Division of Radiation Control thinks that dealing with blended waste calls for some kind of blended approach. But this is just twisted. ...
... Under this arrangement, the state would find itself at a legal and practical disadvantage should it later decide that the flow should stop or that the waste should be removed.
This leap-of-faith approach makes no sense. The DRC should reconsider. Or Gov. Gary Herbert should overrule it.
