Questions arise about shuttering of Kewaunee nuclear power reactor
Residents who live near the Kewaunee Power Station with its 556-megawatt nuclear reactor still are absorbing the recent news that the plant will shut down in May, taking with it 655 jobs and leaving behind possibly for decades scores of concrete canisters filled with spent nuclear waste.

The loss of the jobs as well as the hundreds of thousands of dollars Dominion Resources pays locally in lieu of property taxes is unsettling enough, local officials say. More disturbing, they say, are the 42 containers of nuclear waste that will remain sitting just off the shore of Lake Michigan.

"We've been lied to for 35 years," Dave Hardtke, chairman of the town of Carlton, said of the waste. "When they built that plant, the federal government said they were going to move the waste. That was 35 years ago, and look where it is sitting." [link to host.madison.com]
