More On Luminant Being Slow To Release Information on Comanche Peak Reactors

24 November 2009 at 1:32:49 PM

Wrote about this yesterday-saw this in the FW Press today

Not everyone is opposed to the plants. The city of Glen Rose, which stands to get huge amounts of tax money from the expanded plant, has publicly supported the proposal, and many Glen Rose citizens say they are happy with their nuclear neighbor. But others who live near the plant say that they have seen negative effects on the environment from the first two reactors, and they're worried about the 40,000 gallons of water per minute that the plants would need for the new reactors.

One of the intervenors' goals is to make the process more transparent. When the plant's first two reactors were licensed 20 years ago, the process involved two rounds of public hearings: one for the construction license and one for the operating license. But during the intervening years, that process has been "streamlined," and operating and construction licensing hearings have been consolidated into one round. Now, opponents of the plant say, there is almost no opportunity for public debate and little legal recourse.

"The NRC has always existed to facilitate the licensing of nuclear power plants, and that's still why it exists," said Burnam. But now, he added "a lot of the safeguards that were in place have been removed due to the Bush administration."
