In June, civic and environmental activists won a big victory when the troubled San Onofre nuclear plant ceased operations permanently. The current dispute over defective technology between Edison and Mitsubishi confirms how necessary this outcome was.

Environmental and citizen groups had only a short time to celebrate averting the risk posed by continued operation of the plant. Almost immediately it became clear that this site, wedged between Interstate 5 and the Pacific shoreline, poses a huge challenge of radioactive nuclear waste stored at the plant.

En Junio activistas cívicos y del medioambiente lograron una gran victoria cuando la accidentada planta nuclear de San Onofre dejo de operar permanentemente. Actualmente el conflicto sobre tecnología defectuosa entre Edison y Mitsubishi confirma lo importante de este resultado. 

Las organizaciones civiles y medioambientales tuvieron poco tiempo para celebrar el cierre de operaciones y el riesgo que sostiene esta planta. Casi inmediatamente fue evidente que la ubicación de la planta, entre la autopista Interestatal 5 y la Costa del Pacifico, presenta enormes desafíos para guardar residuos radioactivos.
