I'm curious about something. When there are leaks from nuclear facilities and this gets in the air and also rain water, will it also trickle down through the soil into groundwater?
I heard that when there are such leaks, people are warned to leave those areas and also not to go outside while it is raining because the rain water is contaminated. Since rain water is one of the main sources of groundwater, it will probably contaminate it right? It would be a disaster if people used that water afterward.
