Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, New Mexico

The claim: none, just listed in FEMA camp location websites.

What it really is: It's the third largest deep geological repository licensed to permanently dispose of transuranic radioactive waste in the world. The storage area is 650 meters below ground and has enough room to continue accepting nuclear waste for another 25 to 35 years.

Simply due to the sheer nature of what is stored here, I would hope the place would be as secured as a maximum security prison.
