    Wish there were functional alternatives to decommissioning if the engineering can effect it! Nuke sites should be reserved as energy reservations to build new or upgrade plants by, not seen for condo speculation. There are dozens of towns and cities with oil/gas facilities that are fixtures for a over hundred years. No reason such can’t be regarded for nukes, which would make more acceptable local deep waste storage in bedrock where the sun won’t shine for a billion years anyway.
