A NUCLEAR power station in Somerset has plans to dump more mud into the sea near Cardiff Bay. EDF Energy previously disposed of sediment there in 2018 amidst public controversy. Now the company has started pre-application discussions with Natural Resources Wales (NRW) about dredging and disposing of a further 600,000 m3 of material in 2021, as part of building work for the Hinkley Point C plant. EDF have submitted plans for sampling and testing the sediment at the Hinkley Point C site which will need to be approved by NRW before a formal application can be made.
