Beyond Nuclear, environmental allies, defend legal interventions against Holtec/ELEA CISF

BEYOND NUCLEAR’S REPLY TO OPPOSITIONS TO HEARING REQUEST AND PETITION TO INTERVENE;

Combined Reply Of Don't Waste Michigan, Citizens' Environmental Coalition, Citizens For Alternatives To Chemical Contamination, Nuclear Energy Information Service, Public Citizen, Inc., San Luis Obispo Mothers For Peace And Nuclear Issues Study Group;

Sierra Club;

Alliance for Environmental Strategies.

These filings came in response to Holtec International, and U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff, October 9th filings, challenging the environmental opponents' to Holtec's centralized interim storage facility for irradiated nuclear fuel in New Mexico, including challenging the environmental groups' legal standing, as well as the merits of their legal and technical contentions.

Beyond Nuclear and its environmental allies requested hearings, and petitioned for leave to intervene, on September 14th. Beyond Nuclear also filed motions to dismiss both the Holtec/ELEA, NM, as well as the Waste Control Specialists/Interim Storage Partners CISF in TX.

Next steps in this Holtec/ELEA CISF proceeding could likely include an NRC Commission ruling on the motions to dismiss, and/or the formation of a three-hearing examiner NRC Atomic Safety and Licensing Board, which would preside over oral argument pre-hearings, etc.
