Nuclear Waste Storage

... can fail if exposed to water

While I applaud searching for more water-resistant containers, I note that there is an expanding area of America with diminishing rain and groundwater, which are robust trends expected to continue for the foreseeable future.  Storing waste in these areas would not only protect it from water, but also minimize the chance of disturbance since humans prefer areas with more water to those with less.
