America’s nuclear waste is piling up. The nuclear energy industry has produced more than 67,000 metric tons of spent fuel since 1958, and is adding 2,000 metric tons a year from 104 operating nuclear energy plants. Add to that the estimated 13,000 metric tons of defense-related, high-level waste, and America has a great deal of waste to store safely.
The Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982 assigned responsibility for disposing of all this nuclear waste to the federal government. Specifically, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is responsible for regulating spent nuclear fuel, which is largely stored in pools and dry casks at operating and decommissioned nuclear reactor sites in 34 states. Utilities that own and operate nuclear power plants maintain spent fuel storage.
