U.S. Rep Candice Miller, R-Harrison Township, has requested a status update from the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration on its review of Canadian energy company Bruce Power Ltd.’s plan to ship 16 steam generators with radioactive contents to Sweden via the Great Lakes.
She also asked that the U.S. Coast Guard be included in the review to ensure there is a plan for the Coast Guard to provide an escort with their Canadian counterparts if the shipments are made.
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission approved the shipment Feb. 4.
The generators are being stored on-site at Bruce Power’s Owen Sound facility in Ontario.
