  1. This is a big issue that nearly slipped under the radar … radioactive waste and other nasties!
    It threatens the water aquifer and chalk springs to the South – Arundel (Swanbourne lake area) and Chichester gravel beds, AND to the North – springs in Cocking etc.

    We need our chalk aquifer uncontaminated!

    Consider to the danger of the tankers used to transport in this highly toxic liquid from unspecified locations.
