An Inside Look at the Palo Verde Nuclear Plant

Phoenix, Arizona's Channel 3 crew had the opportunity to record a few minutes of video of the inside of containment at one of the three Palo Verde units that was undergoing a refueling outage. Be sure to check it out.

Palo Verde 'Nucular' plant.

Way to go Palo Verde for making this happen, but I wish the tv station would have made the most out of it. There was nothing of substance in this piece and not a lot of shot of the inside.

Sucker runs of waste water from Phoenix. How cool is that?

That's pretty cool but too bad it's just a short filler segment.

Since most of the general public can't go on a tour of a nuclear plant anymore, it would be really nice if someone would produce a video tour of a plant and put it online. Something with some educational commentary that after you watch it, you really felt like you went on a real tour.

What an incredibly anti-intellectual piece of TV.

Too bad, given that it's a fascinating plant.

Its a pity they didnt say much of a substance. I visited one NPP during refueling shutdown and there were so many cool things going around - refueling machine, Cherenkov radiation clearly visible, tests of tubes in the steam generators etc.

What a shame they dropped all these possibilities to educate the public for the silly radiation gate shots and contamination scarce nonsense.
