“A new research from The University of Texas at Austin shows that rock salt, used by Germany and the United States as a subsurface storage for nuclear waste, might not be as impermeable as thought or as capable of isolating nuclear waste from groundwater in the event that a capsule or storage vessel failed.”

” . . . “The main thing in this case is that salt can develop permeability even in absence of mining activity – further hard work is immutable to study what amount of flow can occur,” said assistant professor Marc A. Hesse of the Jackson School’s Department of Geological Sciences.”
