Nuclear waste in Stockton?

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

STOCKTON – Nuclear waste could be shipped through Stockton if a group of Fresno-area businessmen succeeds in its plan to build the state’s first nuclear plant in more than two decades.

Don’t expect to see cooling towers rise above the farms west of Fresno anytime soon.

The state forbids construction of new nuclear plants until there’s a proven way to dispose of spent fuel, most of which is being temporarily stored at plants across the country. A national disposal site planned for southern Nevada has been delayed.
