Greenpeace have claimed that the Champagne region is being threatened by radioactivity from a nuclear waste dump site. In a press statement, they say that radioactive contamination leaking from the site had been found in underground water less than 10 kilometres from Champagne vineyards.

"Problems at a radioactive waste dumpsite in Soulaine were reported by its operator, ANDRA, to the French nuclear safety authority on May 24th, 2006. According to their report "the wall of a storage cell fissured" while concrete was being added to a recent layer of waste.
