WIPP - Illegal High Level Waste Documentation Plus Evidence; 'Dirty Bomb' Nuclear Waste Container Burned And Released 592 Trillion Bq Plutonium, Which Equals 16,000 Curies Of Deadly Plutonium

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED AT WIPP? THE EVIDENCE DOES NOT MATCH THE OFFICIAL STORY, BUT THEN AGAIN, THAT IS NOTHING NEW FOR NUCLEAR ACCIDENTS


Gov’t Analysis: Up to 592 Trillion Bq of Plutonium equivalent involved in disaster at US nuclear dump – Over 5,000 times amount in waste drum blamed for WIPP release — Official: “We thought for sure” there were multiple ruptured drums — “It actually was measured” in city many miles away (VIDEO)

Via ISeePinkClouds January 27, 2016 The Waste Isolation Pilot Project at Carlsbad,NM,after releasing 16 Million Curies into the Environment as a shipment of Nuclear Weapons Manufacturing Waste from Los Alamos National Laboratory detonated within the facility,which precipitated it's "closure". http://enenews.com/?s=592+trillion+wipp

Now,the Department of Defense,which funds LANL and WIPP is now engaged in funding the manufacturing of Plutonium Detonators "pits" at LANL as the Congress has now funded a project to totally replace the current Nuclear Arsenal. Read more at:

Is WIPP allowed by law to legally dispose of high level nuclear waste? No. Does WIPP currently contain high level wastes? The short answer is yes and that is what will be covered in this article. Whether it is illegal remains to be determined by you via the court of public opinion, and a future court of justice, if some organization or legal firm decides to take this on. How a low level, temporary, experimental salt mine ended up having high level waste inside of it, despite not really having any permits to do it, is the REALLY interesting part. So let's dive in, shall we?

ORIGINAL WIPP PERMITS DID NOT ALLOW ANY HIGH LEVEL NUCLEAR WASTES


This article will explore how in the original agreement and permits, Congress plus other agencies involved, all made it very clear that no high level waste was to be allowed at WIPP. This healthy and sane limitation and safety 'rule' mostly stuck all the way up to 2005.  But somehow, through sleight of hand and changing how things are labeled and classified, high level waste is now inside WIPP. Most of those negative changes happened since the DOE made the infamous 'monster mod' in 2005. What changed? 

NUCLEAR WASTES HAVE BEEN RECLASSIFIED AT SOURCE


In part, what used to be called high level waste has now been 'reclassified' and/or renamed. High Level Waste at WIPP is now called RH Remote Handled Waste or low level Contact Waste, CH. By law, HLW, known as High Level Waste, is theoretically still not allowed at WIPP, but RH and CH waste  is allowed. Let's dive in and see how these magic name changes happened and how HLW High Level Waste ended up at WIPP, and is now being called either CH waste or RH waste.

To explain how this all happened, we will start at Hanford, because that is one of the places where the WIPP RH and CH waste came from. Hanford, as you probably already know, contains a large number of very large underground tanks that are now leaking. What is left in them is high level waste sludge, because the DOE hired contractors to pump out all of the liquids.  For those who do not know about the radioactive nightmare that Hanford is all about, here are a few links to get up to speed..

Hanford - Leaking Radioactive Gas Into Air and Toxic Fluids Into Columbia River
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/02/hanford-leaking-radioactive-fluids-into.html

Regarding whether all of those tanks at Hanford (and many other locations around the US) have been managed as HLW, numerous DOE documents document this very basic fact. For example, Linking Legacies: Connecting the Cold War Nuclear Weapons Production Processes To Their Environmental Consequences, DOE/EM-0319, January 1997, referring to Hanford HLW, states: At Hanford, high-level waste alkaline liquid, salt cake, and sludge are stored in 149 single-shell underground tanks and 28 double-shell underground tanks. Some transuranic waste and low-level waste is also stored in the tanks but all tank waste is classified at Hanford and managed as high-level waste. at 35, emphasis added, see also at 33. 

EXAMPLE OF SUPPOSED LOW LEVEL WASTE AT WIPP, TOTALLY ILLEGAL


Now for the rest of the story... Somehow, high level waste sludge seems to have ended up at WIPP but it is now labeled as CH waste and/or as RH waste. Below is an example of the 'low level' CH waste garbage, but it does not seem to be low level at all, since it contains sludges, resins and liquids in some form or another, plus non transuranic waste, which is supposed to not be allowed inside WIPP. So why is it there?


Low level waste used to be considered waste that did not have a lot of radiation in it, such as clothing, gloves, wipes, etc. Low level waste at WIPP is called contact handled waste or CH. Does the above container sound like low level waste? Obviously, NO..

If this is CH waste, what does an RH remote handled waste containers have in it by comparison? RH waste must be be handled by robots, not people, due to the 10 sieverts or more radiation coming through the lead radiation shielding containers. If they can lie about the low level waste, what do the high level waste containers have in them?

The barrel above contains what they the DOE calls CH waste, or 'low level' nuclear waste;

Resins, and electrochemical milling sludges are solidified with liquid waste, and that waste contains; 

Americium 241

Curium 244
Most curium is produced by bombarding uranium or plutonium with neutrons in nuclear reactors – one ton of spent nuclear fuel contains about 20 grams of curium. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curium

Cesium 137 or Caesium-137 (NOT TRU - TRANSURANIC WASTE - THIS IS ILLEGAL)

55Cs, Cs-137), cesium-137, or radiocaesium, is a radioactive isotope of caesium which is formed as one of the more common fission products by the nuclear fission of uranium-235 and other fissionable isotopes in nuclear reactors and nuclear weapons. It is among the most problematic of the short-to-medium-lifetime fission products because it easily moves and spreads in nature due to the high water solubility of caesium's most common chemical compounds, which are salts. (Cesium is NOT transuranic waste.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cesium_137
(THIS IS ILLEGAL)

Neptunium

Plutonium

Strontium  (NOT TRU - TRANSURANIC WASTE - THIS IS ILLEGAL)

Thorium (NOT TRU - TRANSURANIC WASTE - ILLEGAL)

Uranium (NOT TRU - TRANSURANIC WASTE - ILLEGAL)


ANOTHER BARREL OF ILLEGAL WASTE AT WIPP


Here is another barrel of CH waste, showing illegal non transuranic Cesium and Strontium as part of what is in the mix, together with oils, solvents and what sounds like a witches brew of whatever someone threw in there. (THIS IS ILLEGAL)


Does this sound like low level waste to you? Not really, huh?

WHAT IS REMOTE HANDLED (RH) WASTE?


WHAT IS Transuranic Waste (TRU) (RH) Remote Handled Waste?

According to PattieB on ENENews; Transuranic waste (TRU) is, as stated by U.S. regulations and independent of state or origin, waste which has been contaminated with alpha emitting transuranic radionuclides possessing half-lives greater than 20 years and in concentrations greater than 100 nCi /g (3.7 MBq /kg).[1]

Elements having atomic numbers greater than that of uranium are called transuranic. Elements within TRU are typically man-made and are known to contain americium-241 and several isotopes of plutonium .[2] Because of the elements' longer half-lives , TRU is disposed of more cautiously than low level waste and intermediate level waste. In the U.S. it is a byproduct of weapons production, nuclear research and power production, and consists of protective gear, tools, residue, debris and other items contaminated with small amounts of radioactive elements (mainly plutonium).

Under current U.S. law, TRU is further categorized into "contact-handled" (CH) and "remote-handled" (RH) on the basis of the radiation field measured on the waste container's surface. CH TRU has a surface dose rate not greater than 2 mSv per hour (200 mrem /h), whereas RH TRU has rates of 2 mSv/h or higher. CH TRU has neither the high radioactivity of high level waste, nor its high heat generation. In contrast, RH TRU can be highly radioactive, with surface dose rates up to 10 Sv/h (1000 rem/h). 



As you can see from the table above, the transuranic radioactive elements above  uranium are;

NP, PU, AM, CM, BK, CF, ES, FM, MD, NO, LR

Transuranic waste does NOT include Thorium (Th), Cesium (Ce), or Strontium (St), so why is it in all of these barrels of both CH and RH waste? Remember, this means in case of a leak, fire, explosion, or crushing/rusting out of these plain metal barrels, all of this really bad stuff comes out, not just americium. And if things go bad, they make the bad situation even worse with more things mixed in, rather than fewer. The next logical question is, if most of these barrels contain things just like this, what REALLY came out of WIPP? It was not just Americium, and authorities recently released reports showing Cesium was also measured, so what is the total of ALL of the radioactive elements coming out, not just one or two?

The fact is, WIPP is all about breaking the 'rules', because the nuclear industry does it with everything.

WIPP CONTAINS ATOMIC BOMB PRODUCTS AND NUCLEAR REACTOR GARBAGE


According to PattieB; "WIPP contains atomic bomb-program products plus nuclear reactor garbage all combined together. There are 212 different man made radioactive elements that could be mixed together in various ways inside WIPP. As far as gases produced by WIPP nuclear garbage, it is a smorgasbord of elements and gases.. There is no way to figure out which low level radioactive barrel or high level waste container is producing which decay series of elements or radioactive gases. It is more about what they think may work, put it in a barrel or container and then hope for the best. WIPP generates and releases "all 212 types of gasses like Fukushima was or still is venting at present."


WIPP CONTAINS ILLEGAL FLAMMABLE GAS PRODUCING PRODUCTS


WIPP is not supposed to allow anything that produces flammable gases inside of it. 

Via lam335; "POTR blog has suggested that gases might have been given off by the materials that were contaminated with the Plutonium (Pu). If I understand correctly, the so-called "low-level" waste at WIPP was other materials (gloves, clothing, tools, etc.) that were contaminated with Pu. The constant bombardment of those materials by the alpha radiation causes them to break down chemically, and when they do so, they give off such gases as hydrogen, methane, and some VOCs. They seem to believe that it was some of those gases that exploded, rather than any given off directly by the Pu itself..."

PattieB February 28, 2014 PU generates heat, and gasses result, also fire.. so every damned thing.. paints, plastics, clothing and textiles, wire coatings, and if gets hot enough, metals.. certainly also have sodium vapor, add iodine, and it just goes on and on,.. many carry the radioactive contents when burned or heated to gas / smoke state.!Who knows what is sitting in there…? The paint will likely be a lead-based type.. so add that.. possible asbestos.. zinc from ceiling bolts if hit raw plutonium or did they use hot-dipped galvanized bolts in the ceiling..? It gets crazy,,,,,

Plutonium - Several Compounds Of This Toxic, Radioactive Heavy Metal Are Pyrophoric And Burn When Exposed To Air
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/03/plutonium-several-compounds-of-this.html

In another post by a twitter user, "the levels of plutonium at the WIPP facility is much higher than admitted to by WIPP, which means that there was an underground explosion or fire. Maybe something caught on fire. Maybe a fission event happened.....The DOE has claimed that there is NO surface contamination at WIPP, so why is the DOE stopping the collection of surface swipes at the WIPP site?  If there is a surface contamination of millions of disintegrations per square centimeter, it means that plutonium is present at 1 gram per square meter on the ground, and it had to come out of the exhaust vent at WIPP. This also means that the HEPA filters either did not work, were not turned on, or the 'truck fire' incident was actually a plutonium emission/explosion/fire..

MORE EVIDENCE OF ILLEGAL WASTE GOING INTO WIPP


Do we have any other evidence of 'illegal' waste going into WIPP?

via Brenda Edwards McCracken ·
AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION IS WORTH A POUND OF CURE!
Perhaps WIPP and the community would be cleaner today if the DOE made a diligent effort to address the TSR violation reported by their Chief Nuclear Engineer in 2008 (Busche Complaint Section 2.26 page 12): "In June 2008, the WIPP received a drum containing transuranic waste that read 270 millirem neutrons per hour on contact, which exceeded the waste acceptance criteria for that facility under the RCRA permit. After performing an unreviewed safety question determination, Busche determined that the drum was safe to leave in place. However, the drum was still a violation of the Technical Safety Requirement (“TSR”). Upon convening a meeting of the Plant Review Committee, the committee, including Busche, notified the Department of Energy of the violation. Approximately three months later, Busche was called into a meeting with the senior DOE manager, Dave Moody, and senior URS manager, Farok Sharif, and was asked to rescind the report of the TSR violation. When she refused, Busche was removed from her position and reassigned to the Hanford site of URS." Americans have invested billions in contracts to clean up DOE nuclear facilities in several states. Citizens have a right to know the truth. Pat condescending answers will destroy America's nuclear future. Source; comment to article at;

WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED?


What have we learned so far?

1. WIPP contains illegal radioactive elements that are not TRU waste, such as strontium, cesium, and more. This is FACT, because we are using the documentation that comes directly from WIPP and DOE, not some outside source.

2. Illegal flammable gases are being produced inside WIPP. Every container down inside WIPP has a vent on it, documented and verified by WIPP itself. Each vent on every one of those tens or hundreds of thousands of barrels underground releases flammable gases. These same vents are SUPPOSED to retain the radioactive gases, but do they really? Who is checking that? Where are these gases going, except above ground? So the ungodly number of barrels of CH and RH waste that used to be called high level waste are producing flammable gases underground. These flammable and potentially radioactive gases as well are vented out via the high velocity ventilation system at WIPP. There is no way that decaying nuclear elements in WIPP do not produce a whole host of radioactive and flammable gases. Guaranteed; WIPP is producing flammable and radioactive gases; it is only a question of how many, and how much per day. The more barrels that go down there, the bigger the flammable gas production becomes, and the bigger the explosion when it finally goes boom, due to the pyrophoric metals going down there too. 

Two categories of waste, CH and RH, are approved for disposal at the WIPP. Contact-handled waste containers have surface radiation levels of less than 200 millirem/hr (mrem/hr) and are handled directly by human operators. Remote-handled waste containers have surface radiation levels of 200 mrem/hr and up to 1,000 rem/hr.

SINCE 1998, WIPP HAS BEEN STORING HIGH LEVEL NUCLEAR WASTE


Since 1998, the WIPP facility also started accepted waste that emits 1000 Rem per hour, called CH waste, which is now conveniently classified as 'low level' waste, despite the fact that no can near it and live to tell about it, because it is so radioactive.

According to Wikipedia, One sievert equals 100 rem. This means each CH container can emit up to 10 SIEVERTS per hour. A dose greater than 1 Sievert received over a short time period is likely to cause radiation poisoning, possibly leading to death within weeks. What happens if one of these containers is crushed, leaks or explodes? 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sievert

All waste received for placement in the WIPP facility must conform to the WIPP waste acceptance criteria (WAC)[2]. The WAC prohibits both pyrophoric and compressed gas containers in the waste and limits the amount of liquids. All waste containers disposed of at WIPP are also required [16] to be made of metal with installed vents. ....The shielded container proposed for future RH waste shipments to WIPP is comparable in size, having approximately the same exterior dimensions, to a 55-gallon TRU waste drum. The shielded container however, is designed to carry one 30-gallon vented payload drum, and the cylindrical sidewall of the shielded container has nominal 1-inch-thick lead shielding sandwiched within a double-walled steel shell, as shown in Figure 4-1 and Figure 4-2. The external shell wall is 11 gauge steel and the internal shell wall is 7 gauge steel. The lid and the bottom of the container are made of carbon steel and are approximately 3 inches thick. The container has been tested to DOT Type 7A specifications [7], which will ensure that the container is robust. Type 7A containers must be subjected to test which simulate hypothetical accident conditions for heavy rain (water spray), impacts (drop, puncture), and compression (stacking). These containers are not tested for hypothetical fire conditions.

But what happens when the WIPP ventilation is turned off or reduced severely, such as with a power failure or after a fire, such as the salt truck mine fire? What happened after the truck fire? What happens when the ventilation is turned off? Plutonium waste filled barrel contents can burn even without a spark to ignite them. And when heavy doses of ionic radiation interacts with electric equipment, it can do some very strange things, such as shorting it out.

Plutonium - Several Compounds Of This Toxic, Radioactive Heavy Metal Are Pyrophoric And Burn When Exposed To Air

3. WIPP containers with high level nuclear waste are able to leak, be crushed and/or explode, based on the documented evidence of a radiation plume coming out of WIPP as of Feb. 2014. This was NEVER supposed to happen for 250,000 years. According to the expert in the video above, three geological nuclear waste storage facilities globally, have all failed so far.

EXAMPLE OF WHAT IS INSIDE A CH HIGH LEVEL WASTE CONTAINER


Now that we know the definition of CH and RH waste, let's take a look inside one of the containers of RH waste, to see what is there...


To see for yourself, the inventory of what is at WIPP, and that most of it has cesium and other illegal stuff in it, go to;

Pipe overpack container for trasuranic waste storage and shipment

Above you can see a sample set of barrels full of RH really high radiation, illegal and lethal stuff that they said has had a spontaneous combustion' episode before it went into WIPP.  We have also found out that the plutonium that is 'legal' inside WIPP is also pyrophoric, meaning it can burn spontaneously when exposed to air. They said the above barrel's contents 'will be' treated further to make it 'legal' for WIPP, but nothing in this document states that it was ever done. Maybe they did it right, maybe they didn't. Maybe it will spontaneously catch on fire again, and maybe not. Who knows, now that this and other containers like this are all buried and sealed away, with no way to check and make sure, in case the paper work or certification is missing on it.. 

It is also interesting to note that this container has Cesium and Strontium in it, which are not legally allowed in WIPP, because it is supposed to only be for transuranic wastes, above uranium in the periodic chart. So here we have two examples of illegal waste inside WIPP.. Guess what? This situation with illegal barrel contents is 'normal'. These same illegal and non permitted radioactive elements can be found in many if not most of the containers going into WIPP. If this law/rule is being violated with such impunity and no one is complaining, why even bother with checking what is going in, since it is all illegal to start with? 

Arnie Gundersen, a nuclear expert, says the technology behind WIPP is untested — hence the word "pilot" in the facility's title. "As a society, we believe that if you stick things in the earth, they are safe," he said. "But with radioactivity, it's not dead. It can come back to haunt you if there is a leak afterwards. This is alive.
https://www.commondreams.org/headline/2014/02/17-3

MOST SAFETY RULES AND LIMITS HAVE BEEN DISMANTLED AT WIPP


Many of the protections, rules, limits, safeguards that were initially in place have been dismantled, especially since 2005. As we can see from the above material, plenty of illegal waste went into WIPP, and odds are that what came out via a radiation plume in Feb. 2014 is made up of far more than just the americium and plutonium that is now being admitted to, since most of the containers in WIPP look just like the ones above. This puts into doubt the 'official' radiation readings and identification of what is being found as radioactive material in the filters and outside the WIPP facility, wouldn't you agree?

NUMEROUS SEVERE GEOLOGICAL PROBLEMS IDENTIFIED BUT IGNORED AT WIPP

Authorities knew WIPP was not the best place to store nuclear waste, so they put controls in place, such as limiting it to low level stuff, like gloves, clothing, etc. What happens when you end up putting illegal high level nuclear waste in a very problem riddled site? We just found out what happens; the barrels catch on fire, explode and the whole place turns into a dirty bomb factory, or worse. Those HEPA filters can only take so much, and if anything explodes down there, then those HEPA filters are totally gone, because they are not designed to resist this. What happens when water and crushed barrels all mingle together? 


RADIATION RELEASE COVERED UP FOR SIX DAYS, LIES ARE COMMON PLACE AND ORDINARY IN INDUSTRY



After the six days of denying ANY radiation leak and exposing workers on site and off site in local communities to radiation carried via those workers, (watch video above) the first 'official' report admitting there was a radiation leak coming out of WIPP said that ONLY Americium came out, just like in every household smoke detector.. Then the next (official) WIPP report said plutonium was released, but that plutonium was all natural, not really above 'normal' background radiation, dental xrays and bananas, all of which are false equivalencies. This type of lying, deception and cover up is normal after ever nuclear disaster, believe it or not. Find out more if this is new to you.. 


MANY TIMES MORE RADIATION CAME OUT THAN WAS REPORTED


Over 30 times more radiation got by WIPP filters than gov’t claims? Radiation also released from ‘unfiltered’ vents — Foam used to plug openings is degrading — Filters too radioactive for lab techs to check — No ‘immediate’ danger to public — Rumors of dump getting shut down
4. There is documented evidence that WIPP and DOE officials lied about the amount of radiation coming out, the radiation levels, and types of radiation released. WIPP officials failed to warn not only the employees on site, and but also the public for many days. 

They covered up the nuclear disaster for many days, which is also 'normal' for any nuclear accident, even the large ones like Fukushima, Santa Susana and Chernobyl. Further evidence documents that they minimized the effect of radiation and tried to pass off the huge plutonium release as not having any effect. 


WHOLE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY IS BUILT ON LIES AND DECEPTIONS


Bottom line, the whole nuclear/military industrial complex is built on secrecy, lies and deception, starting with the development of the atomic bomb, the use of it in nuclear power plants, the production and use of plutonium (MOX fuel) and then the disposal of the radioactive garbage that stays dangerous for 250,000 years, which is so long, that is practically forever, when it comes to human history.

As we can see from the four points made in this article and video, there is NO common sense, realistic or safe plan on keeping any of super deadly witches brew of death producing radioactive elements safely away from humans, as evidenced by a radiation disaster that has already happened, before this facility is even finished. This is the equivalent of a house under construction, burning down because of pyrophoric plutonium stored inside of it. Another salt mine just like this in Germany failed just due to severe geological problems, and radioactive water coming out of the mine itself.. See the pictures here..

"In 2008 reports emerged that water leaking from Asse II since the 1980's is radioactive."

WIPP FACILITY IS NOW A SUPERFUND CLEANUP SITE


The whole WIPP facility is now radiation contaminated. WIPP is now a SUPERFUND cleanup site. There is no safe way to let anyone back down in there to work. There is a continuous release of radiation from a leaky HEPA filter system that may not have even been working since it was clogged with soot from the truck fire a week earlier. For a full report on the salt mine truck fire, see the 90 plus page DOE report here;
http://www.energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2014/03/f11/Final%20WIPP%20Underground%20Fire%20Report%2003.13.2014.pdf

EVIDENCE THAT HEPA FILTER SYSTEM FAILED


There is also documented evidence that the HEPA filter and ventilation system failed at WIPP. Here are the details on that...

HEPA Filter System Failed At WIPP Facility; What Is The REAL Story About Radiation Release?
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/03/hepa-filter-system-failed-at-wipp.html

Bottom line, without this radiation leak, without the numerous lies, without the exposure of communities downwind to potentially a HUGE cloud of radiation and gases, there are numerous severe geological problems at WIPP which doom this facility if not short term, then definitely long term.

There are illegal radioactive elements documented above that are going into WIPP and HIGH LEVEL WASTE is already in there, just because someone switched labels, names and categorization of nuclear waste coming from places like Hanford. Some of this nuclear garbage going into WIPP can catch on fire spontaneously. The proof is that this happened down inside WIPP, and created a nuclear disaster that just happened in Feb. 2014.

DIRTY BOMB EXPLODED AT WIPP FEB. 2014


“Patented explosives” reported inside plutonium waste drums at US nuclear facility — TV: So volatile, experts comparing it to ‘bomb’ — Official: I’m appalled we weren’t told about real and present danger — Over 5,000 drums a threat — Invisible reactions may have already occurred (VIDEO)

WIPP Expert: “Very likely” multiple nuclear waste drums exploded, risk of more occurring; It was clearly something major… signs of fire at container holding over 500 billion Bq of Plutonium and Americium — Nuclear Engineer: “This is a huge dirty bomb” (VIDEO)

It is very likely, and probably guaranteed, that more of these barrels will do the same thing that already happened with this above.

10 times more WIPP nuclear drums risk exploding than media reported — Expert: Data shows increasing amount of radioactivity going into environment — Official: Something “caused drum to later catch fire”; Gov’t should investigate if truck fire & electrical surge led to the radiation release

Bottom line, the WIPP facility is a complete and total failure, on multiple counts, and no more nuclear waste should be allowed to go into it. PERIOD.  Just like the German nuclear salt mine storage facility, WIPP failed and the plan now should be figuring out how to get that nuclear waste out of there and back above ground where it can be monitored safely.

DOE ASKED STATE TO REDUCE SAFETY REGULATIONS ON SAME DAY AS DIRTY BOMB GOING OFF


Unbelievably, on Feb 14th, DOE applied to reduce safety regulations even more than they already have, and put even more dangerous stuff down there. Note that the date of the radiation accident is the SAME DAY. What kind of gall and hubris does this take?

DIRTY BOMB ACCIDENT COVERED UP FOR SIX DAYS



Note that on 2/14/14, the facility experienced a radiation release that was covered up for six days, and no one recorded the total release. It is unknown if the HEPA filters and ventilation system worked for those six days and if they did not 'leak' after that date. And the evidence provided via link is that this supposedly 'perfect' HEPA filter system has numerous leaks.  
http://www.nbcnews.com/id/42402150/ns/world_news-asia_pacific/t/diaper-absorbent-used-try-plug-nuke-leak/

DOE has the gall to ask for permission to store even MORE DEADLY nuclear waste and toxic chemicals, despite covering up this accident for six days, lying about radiation release, deceiving the public and having a track record of failure at other facilities. On the SAME DAY OF THE WORST  NUCLEAR FAILURE globally in a salt mine, they demand permission to FAIL in an even WORSE way. Hopefully the public will weigh in this.

GET INVOLVED, GET ACTIVE


Let your local, regional, state, and federal politicians and all of the agencies involved know that you want WIPP closed down. Stand up to this unmitigated, unbridled sense of hubris and arrogance. Join forces with the local citizen based groups and support them in their fight against this nuclear, out of control monster. If not you, who? If not now, when?
