Acid Still Eats AECL Chalk River NRU Isotope Reactor


The conditions which led to a 15-month shutdown of the NRU reactor at Chalk River still exist.
But Atomic Energy of Canada is making progress in reducing the risk of further corrosion to the reactor vessel, according to a report by Canada's nuclear regulator.

This is a cute gem.  Anyway, it appears that the problem was really bad, and now it's only moderately so.  It's still a Seismic Death Trap, but who listens to me?
