2.5M Pounds Of Radioactive Waste Illegally Dumped In Oregon Landfill


Quote:Chemical Waste Management, a subsidiary of Waste Management Inc., was illegally dumping radioactive materials it received from a North Dakota company, Goodnight Midstream, at its waste landfill near Arlington, Oregon.

Chemical Waste Management is the only hazardous waste landfill in Oregon and according to the ODOE, Oregon law prohibits the disposal of radioactive materials in the state.

“We received an inquiry from a citizen from North Dakota in September who was under the impression fracking waste from North Dakota was being disposed of in an Oregon landfill,” ODOE’s assistant director for nuclear safety Ken Niles said.


Quote:Initially, Chemical Waste Management had no records of a relationship with Goodnight Midstream. But it was later confirmed that the North Dakota company contracted a third party, Oilfield Waste Logistics, to dispose of its solid waste. Shipping manifests showed that OWL was sending Goodnight Midstream’s waste to Arlington.

New research on the fallout microparticles shows the material is something like pumice, with gas voids.  The full ramifications are not described. Also It seems as though not all the silica is from concrete.  Glass insulation is implicated.  That puts a new twist on the explosion scenario   

The fallout is like pumice, it would float.  It takes a long time for the stuff to break down.  I think a lot of the fallout stayed on the surface of the water meaning it would not be found in samples of the water column. 

This may have important ramifications.  The ocean surface microlayer is the birthplace for nearly half the ocean food chain.  

Also, the cesium is amalgamated, or compounded with iron. Iron is a nutrient for plankton.  Pseudo Nitzschia plankton, which makes the neurotoxin domoic acid, may have a survival advantage over other types of plankton.  It may also produce more domoic acid, because DA is used to handle UV radiation and sequester metals

we are healthy with background radiation but unhealthy with the same dose from fallout

"ODOE hasn’t issued any fines associated with the illegal dumping of radioactive waste. Officials said it doesn’t meet the criteria that would qualify for a fine."


For three years..just coincidental in lockstep with the great corruptor's deregulation and what not I'm sure Jebus..

Imagine Dragons - Radioactive
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktvTqknDobU

I'm waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and sweat my rust
I'm breathing in the chemicals
I'm breaking in and shaping up
Then checking out on the prison bus
This is it the apocalypse

I'm waking up
I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age
To the new age
Welcome to the new age
To the new age
I'm radioactive
Radioactive
I'm radioactive
Radioactive

I raise my flag and don my clothes
It's a revolution I suppose
We're painted red to fit right in
I'm breaking in and shaping up
Then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse

I'm waking up
I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age
To the new age
Welcome to the new age
To the new age
I'm radioactive
Radioactive
I'm radioactive
Radioactive

All systems go
Sun hasn't died
Deep in my bones
Straight from inside

I'm waking up
I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age
To the new age
Welcome to the new age
To the new age
I'm radioactive
Radioactive
I'm radioactive
Radioactive
