Statement by Prairie Island Tribal Council Regarding Possible Legislation to Expand Nuclear Waste Storage at Xcel's Prairie Island Nuclear Power Plant
PRAIRIE ISLAND, Minn., May 3 /PRNewswire/ -- "It would be premature to comment on any possible legislation to expand storage of nuclear waste at Xcel Energy's Prairie Island power plant, located less than 600 yards from our community, until and unless that legislation is introduced. What we can say is that we have standing to enforce the contract between Xcel Energy and the state of Minnesota limiting nuclear waste storage on Prairie Island. That storage cannot be expanded without our permission. We have been in contact with lawmakers regarding this issue and we hope to continue the dialogue."
