Is the NRC abandoning California?
Ruth Stevens
Early this week the NRC made a strong commitment to Governor Cuomo of New York to start their seismic safety review with reactors at Indian Plant. Cuomo has been concerned about the safety of that plant since at least 2007. As the state's attorney general he took the NRC to task for not inspecting Indian plant with an eye to the safety of the New York City metro area. Yet California has two nuclear energy sites that lie in seismic zones that could generate much larger earthquakes than could happen at Indian plant. Nuclear power plants in Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania and elsewhere, all places where earthquakes are far less likely to occur than on the California coast, are included in the published list of 27 reactors the NRC will investigate in their first round of reviews. Nuclear energy plants in California are notably absent from that list.
