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 Rockwell Lifetime Achievement Award (also known as the Rockwell Award) is based on long-term or lifetime achievement in research, technology development, or education in the fields of radiation protection, shielding, or dosimetry. It is expected that most recipients will have been long-time active members of the Society. Moreover, most recipients will be authors of publications, who made significant contributions to the state of the art in the Radiation Protection and Shielding (RP&S) area.
This award will be awarded to an individual or group of individuals when working closely together and contribute equally to accomplishments no more than once a year and need not be made in all years. The award may be given posthumously.
This award consists of an engraved plaque and monetary award of $500.
This award was established by the Radiation Protection and Shielding Division (RPSD) in November 1986 by presentation of the initial award to its namesake, Theodore Rockwell, III, on the 30th anniversary of the publication of his contribution titled The Radiation Shielding Design Manual.
Nominations should be sent to the Chair of the Honors and Awards Committee of the RPSD. The Executive Committee of the Division elects recipients by 80% positive vote of the members present at a regularly scheduled meeting.
Nominations must include the completed nomination form accompanied by the following supporting documents:
