A few months ago we asked you to help us get some answers from EDF about the muddy waste they were planning to dump in the Severn Estuary. The dumping point was just a couple of miles from Cardiff – and the mud was being cleared to make way for a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point, Somerset. We were concerned that the mud could be toxic and demanded that EDF respond to our concerns. So we asked you to help, and I’m delighted to say that over 109,000 of you helped make sure EDF got the message. Together, our speedy response put pressure on EDF to respond. Here’s what they said: “We have undertaken a number of assessments as part of this application which concluded the activities pose no threat to human health or the environment. All activities on our sites are strictly controlled and regulated by a number of statutory bodies to ensure the environment and public are protected.” The Welsh government are now questioning the dumping plans again. This means, for now at least, we won’t be taking any further action, but we will be keeping a close eye on the situation and be ready to act if needed.
