Nuclear Waste Storage

I recently received some information on the location of nuclear reactors and nuclear waste storage areas.  The big surprise was to find that a small research reactor is located much closer to my location that I had previously thought.  The following link published by National Geographic shows the locations of various nuclear  storage areas and reactors.

The following table shows the location of known research reactors.
