NRC: Dominion Nuke OK
Dominion Virginia Power has cleared another environmental review in its goal to build more nuclear reactors at its North Anna Power Station.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said in a final environmental impact statement that adding reactors at the plant wouldn't pose significant environmental concerns. The report also said that the NRC's staff recommends that the agency issue early site permits for proposed North Anna Units 3 and 4.
