Seems to me that maybe the design should have been sent back to the drawing board until the vulnerabilities were addressed...

Further, the nuclear industry has never effectively addressed the issue of radwaste, what to do with it, and how and where to store it safely.  IMHO, it should have never been removed from the ground.  But what would a goatherder know?   LOL

Re: FUKUSHIMA, other LEAKS of NUCLEAR WASTE: South Carolina uranium leak

A radioactive leak through the floor of a nuclear fuel factory in Columbia, South Carolina has contaminated the soil around it, which has been found to contain a 1,300-fold elevation of uranium above the normal limit. 

Tests to determine if groundwater has been contaminated are pending.  The water table around the plant is shallow, and seeps into area creeks and a river floodplain.  The BPEarthwatch film linked above says that officials believe that the leak did indeed reach groundwater, however, and The State newspaper published in Columbia says that the plant has been leaking into area groundwater for 35 years.

BPEarthwatch recommends that a study begin on the incidence of cancer in the area.

Government agencies need to explain how long the contamination went on and how much radiation has been released.

A portion of the same plant was forced to shut down two years ago due to unacceptable levels of uranium in another part of the building, which belongs to Westinghouse Electric Company.
