Short Business Description:IDAHO’S NUCLEAR WATCHDOG & CLEAN ENERGY CHAMPION
Snake River Alliance works to protect Idaho’s people, environment, and economy from the adverse impacts of nuclear activities, while promoting a clean, renewable energy future for all Idahoans. We embrace an energy future that addresses climate change in a clean, cost effective, and equitable manner, leaving future generations free of the nuclear waste burden.
Long Business Description:
We are Idaho’s fiercest advocate for a nuclear-free future. Left unchecked, the federal government all too often treats Idaho as a nuclear dumping ground?burying thousands of leaking barrels of nuclear waste in shallow pits and intentionally pumping billions of gallons of the most lethal nuclear sludge directly into Idaho’s groundwater. Year after year, the federal government and nuclear companies develop new proposals to burn plutonium and build untested nuclear reactors in Idaho, hoping to leave the waste and the risk with Idahoans. And all this takes place above Idaho’s lifeblood – the Snake River Plain and the Snake River Aquifer. The Alliance works to enforce the cleanup of the areas that are already contaminated and prevent future projects from endangering Idahoans and our extraordinary quality of life.
