Nuclear Plant Would Use The Green River

Salt Lake City, Utah – A proposal to build a nuclear-power plant
in Utah is seeking to use the Green River as a critical source of
cooling water.
The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that a contract to secure the
rights to nearly 10 billion gallons of water identifies the river,
which begins in Wyoming.
But Utah state Representative Aaron Tilton says its still not
clear where a plant would be built.
The Springville Republican is the chief executive officer of
Transition Power Development, which wants to build nuclear plants
in Utah.
Transition Power would need approval from the Utah Division of
Water Rights to use the river water.
