The U.S. government said Monday it removed nearly 132 pounds of spent nuclear fuel from a shuttered San Diego-area reactor that conducted research for nearly 40 years. The nuclear agency said that at the time the reactor was built in the 1950s, the area was remote but is now surrounded by San Diego suburbs. The reactor is now permanently shut down. It's not yet known where, exactly, the facility is in San Diego County, but according to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, General Atomics has been authorized to decontaminate two reactors in San Diego County. They are no other research reactors listed the county on the NRC's web site.

It doesnt say how enriched it is, so the headline is misleading

the headline is from NBC which is a subsidiary of GE which is the #1 manufacturer of enriched uranium. I figured they would know.

If this hadn't been moved I may have never seen this. The area they are reporting this nuke plant to be are false. The real area was a old base named Camp Elliot, home of "Project Orion."

They are things still going on at Camp Elliot. Deeper into the base there is a large underground area 3 or 4 stories down with a huge mess hall. A old friends dad used to work security out there and at night after several drinks his gums would start flapping. He talked about "stuff", his word, that was going on there. We blew it off just thinking it was the booze talking. One night his wife must have overheard him talking, because she ran out and dragged him in and telling us to go home. Wish I would have paid closer attention to what he was saying.
