Biden ddministration targets job-poor areas in search for places to store nuclear waste

Washington, Nov 30 (UNI/Sputnik) The US is counting on the prospect of new jobs in a bid to find communities willing to store nuclear waste from power plants and weapons facilities, the Energy Department (DOE) said on Tuesday.
"We know there are real benefits from jobs to new infrastructure that will result in interest in areas across the country. The public’s input is central to identifying those locations to make this process as inclusive and effective as possible," Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said in a press release.
In 2010, local opposition forced the Energy Department to abandon plans dating back to the 1980s for permanent storage of radioactive waste at an underground site in the state of Nevada.
