Complaint filed with FERC over Grand Gulf management
The Louisiana Public Service Commission (LPSC), the New Orleans City Council, and the Arkansas Public Service Commission on March 2 filed a complaint with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission against Entergy Corporation, seeking damages of more than $360 million for what they term the utility’s “imprudent operation” of the Grand Gulf nuclear plant.
Located in Port Gibson, Miss., Grand Gulf is a single-unit plant with a 1,433-MWe boiling water reactor. The unit, which entered commercial operation in 1985, supplies power to customers of Entergy Louisiana, Entergy Mississippi, Entergy Arkansas, and Entergy New Orleans.

The Radiation Science and Technology Award recognizes meritorious research or basic development from which there is a particularly significant industrial application. The work may have been performed at any time in the past; it must have been fully published in an established scientific journal, and the results of the efforts must have been practically established although not necessarily in widespread use at the time the award is given. The award will be presented to an individual who is determined to have made the most outstanding creative application of radiation sciences and engineering principles.
Nominees need not be ANS members, and any ANS member can nominate a worthy candidate.
