Northern States / NRC hearing
Some recent safety findings by NRC inspectors are to be discussed in public meeting on the 13th of July. This article details the meeting for those wishing to attend and gives a brief synopsis of the scenario, which, to parallel the quote given, sounds just slightly greater than green anyway. Northern States operates two plants at that site, Prairie Island 1 and 2 which are Westinghouse two-loop PWR's rated 1650 MWt and which were placed online in 1973 snd 1974. Northern States is a subsidiary of Xcel Energy.
