Water issues could finish nuclear industry

Water could the be issue that sinks this project

Water Issues Derailing Nuclear Power in Utah SpeakEasy by Tara Lohan February 26, 2010 Nuclear power has been a hot topic these past few weeks with Vermont’s leaking reactor, Georgia’s plans for new ones (thanks to Obama), and the press’s blind approval of all things nuclear. ….

The first hurdle is more immediate. In the Utah desert, this possible climate change solution is colliding with one of its projected consequences: water scarcity.

Blue Castle needs some 50,000 acre-feet annually — enough water to supply up to 100,000 homes — to cool the reactors of its proposed 3,000 megawatt plant, which would produce enough electricity to power nearly 3 million households…………

Water could the be issue that sinks this project, or it could be numerous other funding and safety issues related to nuclear power.
