NEIS DIRECTOR IN I-TEAM STORY ABOUT RADIOACTIVE WASTE

NEIS Director Dave Kraft was interviewed for a story by ABC Chicago Channel-7’s I-Team about irresponsible and illegal storage of low-level radioactive waste at the ADCO Services facility in Tinley park, IL:

Over 70 violations of State radiation statutes over 20 years were uncovered by the Channel-7 I-Team investigation.

What did not make it into the story unfortunately was the message that when it comes to radioactive wastes, “low-level” does not mean “low hazard.”  It is also hoped that the I-Team got the message that waste water from fracking is also radioactive, and should be handled and disposed of as radioactive waste, and not merely dumped into the ground or waterways as “wastewater.”  The recently proposed fracking regulations recently released by the State IDNR for public comment do not contain such regulation of the waste water.
