Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well I can't see any anywhere, but You would think that normally they would need to be low enough for people to work round them, charging the reactor, swapping out fuel etc. and with radiation at that level, you wouldnt really want a pool of spent fuel around either, unless that is a level under the bowels of the machine where people dont go.  (although we do know theres at least one cable run underneath, and  the bit where we had people step in puddles so there has to be some form of access down below)

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Do people work inside the containment, except for maintenance? Also worth to note: the drywell is not normally filled with water.
