How Safe is New Orleans’ Nuke Plant in a Flood?

  • Waterford NPP is near New Orleans.
  • A big flood may be on the way.
  • New Orleans has a history with levees not holding (or being made to not hold)

New Orleans Times-Picyaune  – (2011) Waterford 3 nuclear plant is not immune to ground-fault concerns, some geologists say
by Richard Thompson

Recent advances in geological study have uncovered an array of deep-seated regional faults, long thought to be dormant, that have shown surface movement throughout southeast Louisiana. And in the wake of Japan’s nuclear crisis, some local geologists and environmental activists are warning that the levees along the Waterford 3 nuclear plant in St. Charles Parish should be evaluated for potential fault hazards. . . .

So levees there are going to hold back this massive flood water that is on the way? We hope.

Recall the flooded Nebraska nuke plant in 2012Ft. Calhoun nuclear plant “likely would have melted down” if operators were not forced by NRC to make enhancements before major flooding
