Remembering a fateful day for nuclear waste policy: January 31, 1998
Next week will mark 25 years since January 31, 1998, a date that all in the nuclear community are likely aware, as stated in the article highlighted in today’s #ThrowbackThursday post from the March 1998 issue of Nuclear News: “Those in the nuclear power industry are aware of the significance of the date January 31st, 1998. ln the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, that date was set as the deadline for the U.S. government–more specifically, the Department of Energy–to begin taking possession of and responsibility for spent nuclear fuel from nuclear power plants nationwide.”
