..." Water Resource Protection: The nuclear power industry agrees with EPA that ground and surface waters are valuable resources and that it is far "better to take measures that prevent water contamination than to subsequently have to clean up the contamination. However, the agency should continue to use "all-pathways" dose standards to protect ground and surface water from contamination. "Pathway-specific" limits for groundwater remain unnecessary, NEI says. Hiatt noted that the industry's groundwater protection and underground piping initiatives provide an additional layer of protection to the publicpublic health and the environment. Used Fuel Storage: The industry believes existing regulations governing used fuel storage up to the time of disposal are sufficiently protective, and there is no need to develop a separate rule. New Nuclear Technologies: NEI believes the current regulations adequately cover all known potential nuclear technologies, including alternative fuel cycles and facilities, and small light water reactors."
