A Local Guides First; Safecast visits the San Onofre Nuke Dump
Safecast-collaborators from the NGO Residents Organized for a Safe Environment (ROSE) recently used a bGeigie Nano when visiting the site of the San Onofre nuclear plant in California. It was the first time that Safecast’s devices have been used to make measurements inside a US nuclear plant facility.
The group, which also hosts a Solarcast, has been volunteering with Safecast for a while now, and their strong, local efforts combined with Safecast’s reputation and standing could lead to several Solarcasts finding a more permanent home on the grounds of the San Onofre Plant.
“Our collaboration has the potential to lead to the creation of the first monitoring system of its kind in the US, which would be really exciting, and show the value of local groups having open, accessible tools to work with, rather than having to rely solely on equipment and measurements from companies and government organisations,” Sean Bonner of Safecast says.

ACTION ALERT! CLICK HERE! Write your email today to support an independent real-time radiation monitoring system at San Onofre, because if you are paying attention, SCE has no plan b if something goes wrong, and the last time they had a leak they waited 17 days to let the public know about it.
