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 ground contamination by containing liquid pollutants. Indeed, the fundamental role of a cut-off wall is to act as a mechanical barrier against the migration of material, generally in liquid form, into or out of the surrounding ground.
