From Marfa Public Radio:
Early last year, a Texas-based company revived its efforts to temporarily store spent nuclear fuel from the country’s power plants in Andrews County. The potential storage location happens to be right in the middle of the nation’s busiest oil field — the Permian Basin.
This has an oil company, some local residents and environmental groups worried. But others are hopeful that the efforts to store the waste might be a boon to the local economy.
