Alternative location sought on Muckaty Station for nuclear waste dump
The Northern Land Council has met with traditional owners to propose an alternative location for a nuclear waste dump site on Muckaty Station in the Northern Territory, NITV News reports.
News is starting to surface from yesterday's closed meeting on a possible alternative nuclear waste dump site on Muckaty Station in the Northern Territory.
The Northern Land Council called traditional owners together to propose an different location to the original site which is embroiled in a legal fight.
The nomination of the first proposed site on Muckaty Station is being challenged in the Federal Court.
Traditional owner Dianne Stokes says she was shut out of the meeting, and she's concerned about plans for a second site.
"From what I heard, the Commonwealth is still looking at Muckaty for putting a waste dump there. They didn't get away with this first one so they can maybe have this other one sitting waiting for them".
