“Mic Check: Do you live in this area or know someone who does? Then you might want to know about this. Coming soon near you…A facility that will be capable of turning 3.5 metric tons of weapon-grade plutonium into MOX fuel assemblies annually. Nuclear weapons.
Construction is currently underway. It will be a 600,000-square-foot facility requiring over 170,000 cubic yards of concrete, 35,000 tons of reinforcing steel, 23,000 instruments, 1000 tons of heating and air conditioning vents, 500,000 feet of conduit, 47,000 feet of cable tray, 3,600,000 feet of power and control cable, and 85 miles of piping.
Just like the XL Pipeline, a job creator!! I guess we should all be jumping up and down for joy.
