Nuclear plant workers release unknown amount of radioactive tritium into Mississippi River

Workers at the Grand Gulf Nuclear Plant in Port Gibson, Miss., last Thursday released a large amount of radioactive tritium directly into the Mississippi River, according to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and experts are currently trying to sort out the situation. An investigation is currently underway to determine why the tritium was even present in standing water found in an abandoned unit of the plant, as well as how much of this dangerous nuclear byproduct ended up getting dumped into the river. Many also want to know why workers released the toxic tritium before conducting proper tests.

Torrential rains and melting winter snow continue to saturate the US Midwest. The water has already caused massive flooding and record swelling of both the Mississippi and Ohio rivers. And according to MPB News in Mississippi, the worst is yet to come as this deadly, 500-year flood is expected to wipe out nearly a million farming acres in Mississippi alone, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of acres of farmland in other states like Missouri, Arkansas, and Tennessee that also touch these bursting rivers.
