Millstone wants to keep more nuclear waste on-site

Jul 4th, 2012 | By | Category: Featured Story

Waterford – Millstone Power Station owner Dominion plans to expand its nuclear waste storage capacity more than sevenfold at the 520-acre site of its three nuclear power plants.

Ken Holt, spokesman for Dominion, said the company is seeking to increase the number of dry cask storage units at the site from 19 to 135, enough to hold all the spent nuclear fuel generated by the power plants through the decommissioning of Unit 3, the newest, in 2045.
