Internationally the radiation standard for emissions is now Bq for Becquerels and not Curies. One Curie is 37,000,000,000 Becquerels. A Becquerels is one radioactive emission per second. Hence, 16 billion curies is 590,000,000,000,000,000,000 becquerels or radioactive emissions per second!

US EPA Radioactive Emission Allowances for Nuclear Facilities

Current US EPA air allowances-legal radiation emission “standards”: http://www.epa.gov/radiation/laws/190/ http://www.epa.gov/radiation/docs/laws/40cfr190/190radionucldereleaselimitpublicpresentation-final.pdf The US EPA has no emissions water standards for nuclear facilities. Air standards are incomplete and insufficient. Contrary to what they say, tritium can be filtered. (See more on tritium at bottom)

US citizens need to demand serious public hearings. You may not have a dump or power facility near you today, though many people do, but you may tomorrow. Also, there is a move to dilute waste and call it low level and put it in public…
