NRC issues draft EIA for Holtec storage facility New Mexico

The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission has issued a draft environmental impact statement for a proposed consolidated interim storage facility in New Mexico.

The draft statement includes the NRC staff’s preliminary recommendation that there are no environmental impacts that would preclude the NRC from issuing a license for environmental reasons.

Holtec International is planning to build a subterranean fuel storage facility called Hi-Store in southeastern New Mexico.
