And what do you see waaaaay in the background?  Why, it’s the Prairie Island nuclear plant!  It’s been there so long that now they want to relicense it, but at the state, there’s an uprate and dry cask docket, and so there’s a state proceeding, not that there’s much chance of impact, but it’s there…

Here’s the links to:

Docket 08-509

Docket 08-510

Docket 08-690

Anyway, what’s interesting, at least to me, is that the City of Red Wing has intervened.

Petition to Intervene

Notice of Appearance

Motion to Amend First Prehearing Order

Yes!  It’s a new world out there.  And though their position is likely not nearly what I would hope it would be, they’re there, they’re at the table, and that’s a big step towards asserting themselves in things nuclear.  We’ll see.
