Release of Radiation via Cooling Water in New Designs of Nuclear Power Stations

This report, Liquid Radioactive Waste Discharges from the UK’s Proposed new Reactors  published in March 2011 by Tim Deere-Jones, a marine pollution consultant, records the nature and amount of radioactivity likely to be discharged via cooling water into the estuarine and coastal environment from the new designs of nuclear power station proposed for the UK. The briefing seeks to answer a few of the basic queries regarding the nature of liquid radioactive waste discharges to the marine environment from the two reactors types proposed for the proposed new UK fleet of nuclear electricity generating stations, and is a summary of the available information (which is itself less than complete). It also contains Tim Deere-Jones’ interpretation of the available data based on his 28 years experience as a marine pollution consultant.
