SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. — A 192-wheel trailer will make four trips to haul old generator parts considered to be low-level nuclear waste from California through Nevada and to Utah for disposal.
Efforts will start in the next week to move the four, 380-ton parts from Southern California Edison’s San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station near San Clemente to Clive, Utah, the Orange County Register reported Wednesday.
The departure date was not released for security reasons.
The parts recently were replaced with four new steam generators brought to California from Japan as part of a
$674 million project.
Edison officials said the level of radiation from the old parts poses no risk to the public, but they hope people won’t come out to see the lumbering trailer.
