Beacon Journal staff report
Four environmental groups are fighting the renewal of the federal operating license for FirstEnergy Corp.'s Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station on Lake Erie in northwest Ohio.
The groups — Beyond Nuclear, the Green Party of Ohio, Don't Waste Michigan and Citizens Environmental Alliance of Southwestern Ontario — are seeking to intervene in the case.
Their efforts have been opposed by the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff and FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Co.
A hearing is scheduled March 1 before the NRC's Atomic Safety and Licensing Board.
