Louisiana Nuclear Power Stations’ Dangerous Problems with Thunderstorms – Hurricane Should Serve as Reminder; Petition to Intervene Deadline Oct. 13th; Comment Deadline Oct. 23rd; Relicensing Must Be Stopped

Mining Awareness +


Hurricane Nate’s path and the Louisiana Nuclear Power Stations – Waterford and River Bend.

Both Louisiana Nuclear Power Stations are up for relicensing. Both appear to have serious issues with thunderstorms, despite their rainy, hurricane-prone locations. It is unclear if this is because of defective breakers, the open-phase defect afflicting all but one US nuclear power station, both, or if they are the same. The open phase defect has been known since 2012. Comment deadline-petition to intervene links for River Bend further below. Petition to intervene deadline is Friday the 13th. Serious accidents would impact the petrochemical corridor, shipping and port operations, apart from the environmental and health impacts. As most Louisiana natives appear too busy with parties and church suppers, other people need to take action. Besides, John Grisham’s Pelican Brief is close to the reality – it’s dangerous to be a Louisiana environmentalist. See: http://youtu.be/AWtlVK-GYHY However…
