The ties between Lillyhall in Cumbria and Barnwell site in South Carolina are direct. Those trying to dump rad waste at Lillyhall municipal land fill are Energy Solutions, the one responsible for the Barnwell site (Chem Nuclear is a subsidiary of Energy Solutions) along with WRG (Waste Recycling Group), now (currently) FCC Environment, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Spanish construction company FCC (Fomento de Construcciones y Contrata) the controlling interest of which is owned by billionaire Esther Koplowitz, whose mother was a Spanish aristocrat and whose father was a Jewish refugee from Nazi Germany: “Koplowitz is Vice-President of the Board of Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas (FCC), one of the leading diversified Spanish groups, employing around ninety thousand people. She also holds board positions in several national and international companies, for instance Vice-President of the board of Cementos Portland Valderrivas and formerly board member of French multinational Veolia Environnement”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FCC_Environment http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fomento_de_Construcciones_y_Contratas According to Forbes she and her sister are billionaires. Esther is gorgeous on the outside but either thoughtless-ignorant or evil on the inside. The company has been indebted (how can a company be indebted when its owners are billionaires?) and 6% was recently bought by Bill Gates and 3% by George Soros, with Esther still holding the controlling shares. As the construction industry went belly up in Spain –obviously since it was built on an unsustainable scheme of endless growth– FCC has decided to focus on overseas funding and markets. According to Reuters, “Spain’s FCC to seek overseas financing”, By Andres Gonzalez and Judy Macinnes, Jun 22, 2011, “Spain’s FCC (FCC.MC) will focus on overseas growth and financial partners for new projects, to reduce its own investment commitment and the debt pile it accumulated during the global financial crisis.” So, it seems that while they all keep their billions, they will focus on dumping radioactive waste in poor Lillyhall’s landfill, with the help of screwup Energy Solutions that still can’t get the Fukushima water situation fixed with their screwup ALPS system. How long can it take people? ALPS has been around for DECADES, and dealing with nuclear facilities for DECADES. Note that Energy Solutions is not even trying to filter the tritium at Fukushima – something which is more complex, but is being done, elsewhere and which is object of the Barnwell complaint. If these folks don’t turn around there is an especially warm place in hell for them. If people don’t get serious over Fukushima, we will all be dead and going one direction or the other soon. There is money to be made in innovation and getting things done right! Why do these people continue to do things wrong.

COLUMBIA — Arguing that waste-contaminated water is spreading to the groundwater, environmental groups are challenging the state permit that allows low-level radioactive waste to be buried at a Barnwell site.

The South Carolina Environmental Law Project will represent the Sierra Club before the state Court of Appeals on Feb. 5. They are challenging an Administrative Law Court decision that affirmed the license renewal, pitting them against the state Department of Health and  Environmental Control and the site operator, Chem-Nuclear Systems. The environmentalists are concerned about tritium flowing from the facility to Mary’s Branch Creek. Court records state that Chem-Nuclear’s disposal practice of pumping contaminated water out of a trench into lined ponds and other areas caused radioactive material to contaminate nearby church property in 1999. The appeal emphasizes that the landfill operator hasn’t done enough to protect the environment from the contents of the site, particularly since the vaults that…
