WILLIAMSBURG - A radioactive waste site may be moving out of Williamsburg due to recent state legislation that says the plant is too close to a school.
The Radiac plant, the only facility in the city licensed to handle radioactive waste, is just up the block from P.S. 84.
Recent legislation passed by the state Assembly and Senate has banned radioactive material from being closer than 1,500 feet from a school.
If Gov. David Paterson (D-N.Y.) signs the bill into law, the plant might not shut down right away. A spokesman for the company says he is trying to get Radiac grandfathered, which means the company would not have to relocate if the bill becomes law.
