Proposed nuclear plant awaits ruling

CRYSTAL RIVER — With two nuclear plants in Levy County looming on the horizon, residents voiced their opinions Jan. 12 about the effect on the Nature Coast’s environment.
Three judges came to the Plantation Inn Resort to listen to them: two engineers, Dr. Randall J. Charbeneau and Anthony J. Baretta, and an attorney, Alex S. Karlin, who was the chairman. They were assigned by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Atomic Safety and Licensing Board to conduct contested hearings for the Levy plant’s Combined License Application to construct and operate the plant.
Karlin first explained that the judges were independent of the NRC Atomic Safety and Licensing Board. He said only one contention currently was admitted in the Levy COLA review. It was filed by the Nuclear Information and Resource Service, the Ecology Party of Florida and the Green Party of Florida.
