Bruce waste thing wakes up Michigan Senate


Nice to see that things are proceeding.  Looking at the comments, they have some boosters.  My comments on the comments:

-the rock is a Karst formation, or more properly called Paleocollapse.  The rock is not 'solid' under their chosen zone, but rather they found a layer of limestone that is relatively intact.  Getting to that zone will be fun, and they will have to inject trainloads of grout, and pump out enough brine to fill a lake.  None of which is mentioned in the hearings.  I never worry about this, because I don't think they can get down the first fifty feet.  This is all just a paper exercise, much like the Bruce plans for putting a nuclear reactor on Lake Erie.
