While the oil and gas industry, and shipping have largely shutdown, Waterford Nuclear Power Station in Killona is operating at 100%, with no concern for risk of levee failure or other hazard: https://archive.li/ZAtJz


Waterford Nuclear Power Station is on the Mississippi River, apparently below river level, but protected by a levee (unless the levee fails) and by some amount of waterproofing. It almost faces the Bonnet Carre spillway and is near Lake Ponchartrain. The official map has the storm surge stopping right next to the nuclear power station, which appears rather arbitrary – unless because of the levee. The levee has been strained because of Trump appointee Richard Kaiser’s refusal to open the Morganza spillway. It’s purpose is to reduce strain on the levee. The Morganza was built almost 70 years ago so it could be opened and used: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2019/07/11/tropical-storm-barry-key-messages-storm-surge-rain-endangers-levees/

From 10 PM CDT Thursday July 11 to 04 AM CDT Monday July 15

Louisiana Hurricane Watch; Storm Surge Watch; Levees & Nuclear Power Station(s) At Risk

Mining Awareness +

Everyone should worry about this storm due to potentially weakened levees and nuclear power stations along the Mississippi river. Any levee failures will be the fault of the Trump Administration/MRC, and perhaps Trump himself, as surely as if they/he had blown up the levee, because they/he refused to open the Morganza Spillway. The final say for opening the Morganza lies with Trump appointee and head of the MRC (Mississippi River Commission) Richard Kaiser.

Waterford Nuclear Power Station and Storm surge watch. Waterford is protected by a levee — a levee which may have been weakened by Trump-MRC-Richard Kaiser’s failure to open the Morganza spillway and by the extra water flow going to the Bonnet Carre, which faces Waterford NPS. The Mississippi River wants to go toward the Atchafalaya, which means through the Waterford nuclear power station. That’s the purpose of the river control structure, upriver from the power station…
