Nuclear containment cut-off walls: What is at stake?

Operations at major industrial or energy facilities can contaminate the ground on which they are built.

Acting as a containing structure, these concrete walls built beneath the surface help preventing from any water movement in the ground to improve ground stability. They also prevent from any ground contamination by containing liquid pollutants. Indeed, the fundamental role of a cut-off wall is to act as a mechanical barrier against the movement of water – clean or contaminated – and/or gas or vapors in the ground.
