GNEP Citing Period Closing Off

KENNEWICK, Wash.- TRIDEC has just days to submit their final citing study on the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership at Hanford.

The organization has until the end of the month to submit their citing study on the controversial plan.

The proposal would bring a new reactor to the site, along with a fuel reprocessing station and laboratory.

Supporters say Hanford is a prime site because of preexisting facilities like the FFTF.

They hail it as the area's economic future after cleanup.

Two public meetings on the issue brought out hundreds last month.

DOE is expected to weigh those public comments and the TRIDEC feasibility report to make a decision.
