Some Los Alamos nuclear waste too hazardous to move

Texas lawmakers want to ban dangerous radioactive waste. The proposal would  give a nuclear waste company a big financial break.

 

A report by a Santa Fe newspaper says Los Alamos National Laboratory has identified 45 barrels of radioactive waste so potentially explosive — due to being mixed with incompatible chemicals — that crews have been told not to move them and instead block off the area around the containers.

The report by the Santa Fe New Mexican is based on a government watchdog’s report.
