EDF as clear as mud on environmental impact, says Green MEP

A court has ruled that EDF, the corporation building the new nuclear reactor at Hinkley, was ‘not accurate’ on whether 300,000 tonnes of mud it is dredging from the seabed near the construction site and dumping in Cardiff Bay was included in the Environmental Impact Assessment. A judge has ruled that the company must clarify the matter. 

Responding, Molly, a longstanding critic of Hinkley C, said: 

“This ruling shows that EDF are about as clear as mud when it comes to addressing environmental concerns. The company is in it up to their necks, rapidly losing the trust of communities affected by Hinkley C. It’s time for them to come clean on the potential environmental and health impacts of dumping 300,000 tonnes of potentially contaminated mud in Cardiff Bay.”
