A Richmond court’s revocation of a water permit key to operating the North Anna nuclear power station may delay construction of a third nuclear reactor, environmental groups claimed yesterday.

Judge Margaret Spencer of Richmond Circuit Court ruled on Friday that Dominion Virginia Power’s water-quality permit violates the federal Clean Water Act and remanded the permit to the Virginia State Water Control Board for review.

The permit allows the power company to dump heated water from its North Anna power station into cooling lagoons at Lake Anna.
