The Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance has released a special report: Cutting Corners to Save Money: Safety Compromises as the UPF. The report looks at the ways safety has systematically been back-burnered at the Uranium Processing Facility in order to save time and money. Ironically, attempts to push safety questions out of the way have backfired”costing the project both time and money while still leaving the community at risk. The report documents the near-unanimous opinions that an above-ground facility is less secure, and less safe, than a below-grade facility. Nevertheless, the NNSA continues to move forward with plans to build the UPF above ground.
