Radiation related issues
We have proof that there are plutonium and uranium particles in the silt around Hinkley. These are mainly in the first metre of mud and silt which gets resuspended in the water when dredged and dumped again.

- Hot particles Why they are an important hazard
- CR-39 Hot particle testing Our citizen science program tests for plutonium and uranium particles in the estuary
