US Nuclear Plant to spend serious money for seismic


The operators of the San Onofre nuclear power plant are proposing a multimillion-dollar study that would use new technology to better assess seismic conditions near the complex.
Edison officials said the proposed study would tap into new technology that could lead to a more accurate threat assessment. San Onofre was made to withstand a magnitude 7 quake from a fault five miles away and is protected by a 30-foot seawall, Alexander said.

Well, I'm impressed.  I would love to see what they intend to do.  I hope it's a transparent process.  This is so much better than spending nothing.....
