The nonprofit consumer group Public Watchdogs has filed a lawsuit to halt the transport of nuclear waste into steel-lined silos on the beach at San Onofre State Beach Park. Public Watchdogs is the only advocacy group engaged in litigation against the beachfront San Onofre Nuclear Waste Dump owned and operated by Southern California Edison.

The cask got stuck on a ¼” guide ring for about an hour over an 18-foot drop.
