PFS' Utah Plans Inch Closer to Approval

From the Salt Lake Tribune:

The Atomic Safety and Licensing Board on Tuesday rejected Utah's latest appeal seeking to prevent Private Fuel Storage's plans to store 44,000 tons of nuclear waste on the Skull Valley Goshute Indian reservation.

The board's decision means PFS is inching closer to getting its license to build an interim spent fuel-rod storage site 45 miles southwest of Salt Lake City. PFS officials have said they could be operating by 2007.

I engaged in a brief debate with Jay Winter Nightwolf when I did a radio interview (mostly on nuclear power) at WRYR 97.5 in Sherwood, Maryland. WRYR is a 100 watt station serving the Eastern and Western Shores of the Mid-Chesapeake Bay Region. Nightwolf complained about the PFS project and stated that most of the indians opposed the project. This was in response to my statement that some of the indians on the reservation supported the project. He stated that only one marginal guy supported the project. We went back and forth on this point. Paul Gunter and another antinuclear activist also 'happened' to show up during my segment and we had a lively discussion about nuclear power.
