Dominion Nuclear North Anna
Louisa County, VA

Dominion Nuclear North Anna, LLC has applied to expand the North Anna Nuclear Power Station, in Louisa County, VA by requesting a 20-year Early Site Permit (ESP) from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). If granted, this expansion could add at least two new nuclear plants at North Anna.


Reply of BREDL to Dominion on North Anna

April 9, 2014: From the reply of BREDL to the NRC and the power company, quoting Emerson:

"What is the use of courts, if judges only quote authorities, and no judge exerts original jurisdiction, or recurs to first principles?" In this matter, first principles require a power plant not inimical to public health and safety.

BREDL files Motion to Reopen and Admit New Contention on North Anna

PACE first press conference outside Charlottesville, Virginia city hall, launching the campaign against Dominion-Virginia Power’s plan to expand North Anna.

March 2014: After the Virginia earthquake in 2011, BREDL filed new objections to a third nuke at North Anna. After two-years of additional analysis, Dominion-Virginia Power still seems to be unable to build a new plant without departures, exemptions and variances from federal environmental and safety regulations. The company’s inability to meet standards is at the crux of our motion to reopen the license challenge.

The League and 12 other Groups Petition NRC to
Suspend Reactor Licensing Decisions at
Sequoyah, Bellefonte and North Anna

Feb. 27, 2014: Our motion to stay petitions the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission to suspend reactor licensing decisions while the agency considers new information on the environmental impacts of used radioactive fuel storage in reactor pools.  This new information was detailed in the Consequence Study of a Beyond-Design-Basis Earthquake Affecting the Spent Fuel Pool for a U.S. Mark I Boiling Water Reactor, Oct. 9, 2013. The NRC Staff found that if even a small fraction of the inventory of the Peach Bottom reactor pool were released to the environment in a severe spent fuel pool accident, an average area of 9,400 square miles would be rendered uninhabitable, and that 4.1 million people would be displaced over the long-term. And the NRC concluded for the first time that the likelihood of spent fuel pool fires could be affected by reactor accidents.

Motions filed to bring waste confidence contentions at
North Anna (VA), W.S. Lee (SC) and Bellefonte (AL)


The July 9 motions to reopen and motions for leave to file a new argument (or “contention”) are legal steps necessary to hold certain electric power company’s feet to the nuclear fire. These actions follow the recent federal Court of Appeals order striking down the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s patently ridiculous “Waste Confidence Decision,” which should now be enshrined in Blackstone’s dictionary along with other “legal fictions.”

BREDL comments on Seismic Risk Evaluations
for Operating Reactors

Oct. 31, 2011: The glacial pace of the NRC’s safety and security procedures appears to be wholly unresponsive to reality, which threatens to undermine both the agency’s authority and the safety of the plants it licenses. During the last three years we have seen both nuclear and financial meltdowns. Heedless of events, the NRC continues to gamble with sub-prime safety codes and horizontal acceleration default swaps.

Virginia Supreme Court Hears North Anna Case

Oct. 31, 2011: Today the Virginia Supreme Court will hold oral arguments on Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League’s appeal of an environmental permit for Dominion-Virginia Power’s North Anna nuclear power station.

The case centers on a Clean Water Act permit for the North Anna nuclear power station. The Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League first challenged the permit in 2008 and won; the Circuit Court of the City of Richmond concluded that the State Water Control Board’s NPDES wastewater permit for the North Anna electric power plant was “not in accordance with the law.” However, Dominion-Virginia Power and the state Department of Environmental Quality obtained a reversal in the Court of Appeals. Early this year the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League was granted the right to take its case to the state Supreme Court.

BREDL’s Reply to Dominion Virginia Power and NRC
regarding the Virginia earthquake’s impacts

Oct. 20, 2011: Shirking and sharking, in all their many varieties, have been sown broadcast by the ill-fated cause; and even those who have contemplated its history from the outermost circle of such evil, have been insensibly tempted into a loose way of letting bad things alone to take their own bad course, and a loose belief that if the world go wrong, it was, in some off-hand manner, never meant to go right.

Change in reactor design forces new hearings


The Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League’s ongoing intervention in the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s licensing of Dominion-Virginia Power’s North Anna Unit 3 has reached a major turning point. On June 29, 2010, Dominion submitted a new license application, substituting a US Advanced Pressurized Water Reactor design for the Economic Simplified Boiling Water Reactor.

League Challenges Dominion's New Reactor Design

June 18: Lou Zeller, representative for the League, said, “Dominion’s switching of reactor technology is like altering the foundation after the walls are up.” He said that the switch this late in licensing the plant would make it difficult to regulate. Zeller added, “The Commission may lack the regulatory duck tape to piece it together.” He drew a comparison of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission with the Interior Department's Minerals Management Service, the agency which oversees offshore oil drilling and which became too accommodating to its licensees.

BREDL files Brief regarding Dominion-Virgina Power's Appeal of North Anna Decision

Jan. 26, 2010: BREDL's brief filed on Jan 19 regarding Dominion-Virginia Power's appeal in Circuirt Court. The Dominion-Virginia Appeal is of the February 2009 Virginia Circuit Court's decision that ruled state agencies violated federal law and revoked the water quality permit for the North Anna nuclear station.

Two-thirds of the energy generated at every nuclear power plant is not converted into usable electricity. Rather, it is wasted and discharged to the environment. This waste heat can be discharged directly to the air via cooling towers, or it can be discharged to a body of water. Heat discharged to waterways poses a special environmental threat and is subject to the Clean Water Act. For decades Virginia’s State Water Control Board has declined to limit thermal discharges from the North Anna nuclear power plant.

BREDL Answer Opposing Dominion Motion to Reconsider

Dec. 19, 2009: For over a year, the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board judges have allowed our intervention to proceed. Our argument that the power company has little or no plan for what to do with its radioactive waste is still not adequately addressed. In November the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board agreed that Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League’s position that Dominion-Virginia Power’s radioactive waste storage plan needs further study. Unhappy with the ruling, Dominion filed a motion for the Board to take a second look, called reconsideration. But Dominion’s Motion for Reconsideration sets up a straw man argument. Our answer to Dominion was filed on December 17. The judges could rule at any time.

Victory in Landmark Clean Water Act Challenge
League and Lake Residents Overturn Dominion Nuke Permit


Feb. 20, 2009: Today a Virginia court in Richmond ruled that state agencies violated federal law and that the water quality permit for Dominion-Virginia Power's North Anna nuclear station is revoked. Read BREDL Press Release | Background information | Transcript of Judge's Ruling


BREDL members and chapters in Virginia and supporters of the federal Clean Water Act everywhere hail landmark court victory.

On September 14, 2009 the Virginia Circuit Court judge issued her Final Order stating that Virginia's State Water Control Board wrongly allowed Dominion-Virginia Power to use part of Lake Anna as it's private waste lagoon. The Order finalizes the court's February 20 oral ruling and enters it into law. The decision means that the company's North Anna nuclear power plants may not continue to dump heated water into the lake unregulated and the state must now develop a permit which complies with the federal Clean Water Act. The Order Denying Appellees Joint Motion for Stay is another win for BREDL because the judge rejected the motion by the state and the company to suspend, or "stay," the effect of judge's ruling. The filing of the Final Order also sets the clock in motion for appeals. Stay tuned!

Also, we have formalized our opposition to oral arguments which were held on the telephone. BREDL Motion


Atomic Safety and Licensing Board grants hearing to BREDL on North Anna Unit 3

The judges of the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board have granted a hearing to the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League on CONTENTION ONE: Dominion Lacks a Realistic Low-level Radioactive Waste Plan. The ASLB order issued August 15, 2008 states:

"We find that one of the Petitioner's contentions (Contention One) is admissible in part, and the Petitioner has therefore met the necessary prerequisite for the Board to grant a hearing request....BREDL has met the requirement to identify the specific deficiency in the Application and the reasons for its belief. We therefore conclude that Contention One satisfies the requirements of Section 2.309(f)(1). Dominion and the NRC Staff do not contend that Contention One, construed as a safety contention, was resolved in the [early site permit] proceeding....We therefore admit Contention One as a safety contention based on the omission of necessary information from the [final safety analysis report]."

Read ASLB Memorandum and Order


On April 28, 2008 the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League requested that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission grant a new deadline for the filing of petitions for leave to intervene. (BREDL request) This motion is based on an inadequate Notice of Hearing and Opportunity to Petition for Leave to Intervene published in the Federal Register. Dominion-Virginia Power responded to us two days later (Dominion Reply) and the NRC held to its deadline.



The June 3 replies from NRC and Dominion respond to our May 9th petition and uniformly oppose all our arguments. (NRC response | Dominion response ) In turn, we sent our reply to Dominion and NRC on June 11th. (BREDL Response)


On June 20th, the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board issued an order directing BREDL, and other the parties to focus the argument upon BREDL’s first, second, and third contentions. The Board said they were "not interested in hearing argument concerning the remaining contentions." (ASLB Order) BREDL objected and replied to the judges' order on June 30. (BREDL Reply) The Board was unresponsive and held the hearing via telephone conference on July 2nd.


BREDL sends complaint to NRC Licensing Board regarding the North Anna nuclear power station licensing process

July 1, 2008: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is holding oral arguments for the nation's first adjudicatory hearing on a nuclear power plant construction and operating license behind closed doors. The nuclear plant is the proposed North Anna Nuclear Power Station Unit #3 in Virginia. Despite our request for a face-to-face hearing in Charlottesville, the judges are holding the oral arguments via telephone conference call. The judges' decision has implications for the licenses to follow in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and nationwide because this is the first permitting process for new nuclear power plant license since the rules were re-written in 1989. We think it sets a bad precedent. In the past, such hearings were held near the community where a proposed facility was to be located, at a place where residents, officials and the media could attend. Read BREDL's Complaint


May 16, 2008: BREDL scoping comments on EIS for third nuclear reactor at the North Anna nuclear power plant. BREDL Comments


May 2008: The Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League and its Virginia chapter the People’s Alliance for Clean Energy have filed to halt construction of a third nuclear reactor at the North Anna nuclear power plant. The petition raises eight major issues: Dominion lacks a realistic radioactive waste plan, Unit 3 would be located on top of a geological fault, the plant’s cooling system will violate water quality standards, the plant will not adequately limit radioactive emissions to the atmosphere, uranium is an unreliable fuel source, the license would violate the protections of due process and equal protection, irradiated fuel would remain on site, and the plant would be a target for terrorist attacks.

Lou Zeller, the League’s legal representative, said that Dominion covered up evidence of a geologic fault in the 1970’s and now they want a variance because they cannot meet safety standards. Zeller said, “Fool us once, shame on you; fool us twice, shame on us.”

The League plans to press the seismic issue and other safety and environmental problems created by the proposed third reactor.

Elena Day of PACE said, “New nuclear reactors at North Anna would be irresponsible because the water situation is critical. The growing population in this area and the ongoing drought will only exacerbate the situation.”

The petition to intervene was filed on May 9th with the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

League files Motion for Delayed Deadline in North Anna nuclear license

On April 28, 2008 the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League filed a legal motion with the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission to postpone deadlines for the North Anna Power Station construction and operation license. Dominion Virginia Power plans to add a third nuclear reactor at its plant in central Virginia.

Unless a new deadline is granted, the public will have had only three weeks to review the necessary documents to intervene in the licensing process.

Federal administrative procedures require that the time be no less than 60 days. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is ignoring its stated goal of providing "ample opportunities for members of the public." We know that there are fundamental safety questions which must be addressed. A previous Atomic Safety and Licensing Board decision on North Anna said these safety issues are "unresolved." The public needs time to investigate. For these and other reasons, Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League filed this motion.

Read April 28 Legal Motion


Jan. 2, 2008: On Friday, December 28th, the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League filed a petition against the Virginia's approval of a water permit for the North Anna nuclear power station (NAPS) located near Charlottesville.

The League's petition states: The Board's re-issuance of this Permit was in violation of Virginia's State Water Control Law, the federal Clean Water Act, and the Virginia Pollution Discharge Elimination System, as well as other laws and regulations governing water quality. Specifically, state and federal laws and regulations require regulation of and limitations on thermal pollution discharges into Virginia's waters. There was ample evidence presented to the Board and DEQ as contained in the record which demonstrated that thermal pollution discharges from NAPS into Lake Anna are causing and contributing serious harm to the lake and to Virginia citizens' use and enjoyment of that natural resource. Despite the mandate under state and federal law and the record evidence of the thermal pollution problem in Lake Anna from NAPS, this Permit contains virtually no limits at all on thermal pollution. For the reasons stated in this Petition for Appeal, BREDL asks this Court to suspend and set aside the Permit and to remand the Permit to the Board and DEQ for further proceedings consistent and in compliance with federal and state water laws and regulations.

Oct. 25, 2005: Problems with Dominion Nuclear North Anna's Early Site Permit and the Federal Coastal Zone Management Act | Read BREDL's Oct. 25 letter to Virginia DEQ | View Map Attachment to letter Dominion-Virginia Power is attempting to mischaracterize the permit in an attempt to limit the scope of the state's required coastal zone review. Dominion states that the existing power plant and the proposed nuclear site permit (ESP-Early Site Permit) are not located within Virginia’s Coastal Zone. However, North Anna Power Station is, indeed, within the Virginia coastal zone which includes Spotsylvania County‘s portion of Lake Anna. Dominion downplays the permit's impacts. But activity permitted by the ESP would include major construction including clearing and grading for roads; construction of warehouses, utilities and concrete mixing plants; excavations for facility structures; sewage treatment plants; and intake and discharge structures, water lines, and cooling towers. Finally, Dominion’s certification is inconsistent with the National Environmental Policy Act, which requires consideration of cumulative impacts and connected actions. The ESP permit and the pending Combined License are “connected” actions as defined in the Council on Environmental Quality regulations at 40 CFR 1508.7.

Sept. 01, 2005: Read BREDL letter to Nuclear Regulatory Commission On February 17, 2005 at a Nuclear Regulatory Commission public hearing, a man who identified himself as an employee of Dominion-Virginia Power falsely accused the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League of misusing public health data. His allegations not only have no basis in fact, they do nothing to alter our conclusion that deaths increased significantly after Dominion's nuclear reactors began operation. In this letter the League demonstrates why the allegations are false and asks the NRC for further investigations into death and disease in the communities around the North Anna nuclear power station.
