Letter: Portsmouth plant will jeopardize the groundwater

There are 7 comments on the The Columbus Dispatch story from Nov 10, 2017, titled Letter: Portsmouth plant will jeopardize the groundwater. In it, The Columbus Dispatch reports that:

This letter is in response to "Battling the dump" . First, we need to get one thing perfectly clear; all disposal cells, including the planned, on-site disposal cell at the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant, will eventually leak, jeopardizing the groundwater.

Well well well. Good ole Mayor Spencer has turned his back on the people of Piketon. Claiming he wants to stop the OSWDF for the supposed good of the community. At first I thought he was an idiot but then I figured out he's pretty smart in taking care of himself. If he continues with his lies about the project and gets it stopped, immediately I'm sure about 300 of jobs will be lost the week it is announced. IMMEDIATELY!!!!! Then a few months later you know around 700 or more will be lost. We will go to minimum safe staffing. How many people is that 350 maybe? If things are not being torn down and a plan in place, why would the DOE keep paying us for nothing? The Cold-Standby days are long gone. So while we all are on the unemployment line I have a feeling Mayor Spencer will be a highly paid "consultant" with some big name national transportation company that is probably secretly funding the stopping of this project. Who stands to gain the most from stopping this project? A trucking company who would ship this stuff at a premium cost to tax payers out west for years and years. And oh yeah, endangering the lives of every ohio citizen with those 100,000 + trucks on the highways by non ohio truck drivers. Oh and don't think we will stay employed till that happens. It will take decades to get a new disposal plan in place that would allow for all the construction waste to be transported. All the while Mayor Spencer will get fatter and fatter taking the bribe......ummm I mean "consultant" money leaving Piketon to die. My theory is there is way more to this story......

Seriously? Are you a Fluor lackey? Since when did doe decide funding? Never! Every time they tried to layoff people congress steps in and preserves jobs-every time.

Other fallacies in your ignorant post:
-trains can haul everything except classified material( safer and cheaper than trucks)
-there are 2 commercial facilities already in place and ready for our debris; and doe has the nv site too
-just like the doe fudged bedrock data, the traffic stats are pure conjecture and based on std insurance traffic stats, not based on the doe excellent experience
-shipping everything off site costs $218m more than on site dumping. That is less than 2% additional since the project is est at $14b
-work can continue-transition existing dump builders to demolition and continue shipping. Portsmouth site is largest shipper in doe complex -5 yrs straight

I️I️ could go on and on but I️ figure you’ll just ignore the facts.
