UPDATE, Oct. 22 -
The article here may be a STUDY to put the nuke waste in that salt dome. IT IS UNVERIFIED that there is nuke waste there now.
Commenter, Mac says -
The Vacherie Salt Dome was one of the sites being studied for nuclear waste storage, but it wasn’t selected. They picked and were working on the site at Yucca Mountain for years, but I believe even that project was closed down a couple years ago. Spent rods and such are, to my knowledge, being stored on site at various nuclear facilities.
