Ohio nuclear plants get stricter scrutiny after safety system problems

As reported by Kathiann M. Kowalski in Midwest Energy News. Beyond Nuclear's radioactive waste specialist, Kevin Kamps, is quoted in the article.

Working with local grassroots allies, such as Toledo attorney Terry Lodge, and Don't Waste Michigan's Michael Keegan -- both several decades long watch-dogs on Davis-Besse -- Beyond Nuclear challenged the 2017-2037 license extension. NRC rubber-stamped it nonetheless.

A major issue cited was Davis-Besse's severe and ever-worsening concrete containment Shield Building cracking.
