Challenge to nuke nixed

A federal court judge dismissed on Monday a petition to review water usage increases at the Susquehanna nuclear power station because it had been filed a day too late.

Eric Epstein, who heads the Harrisburg-based nuclear-watchdog group Three Mile Island Alert, had petitioned the court to decide whether the Susquehanna River Basin Commission erred when it ruled in September 2007 that the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station could withdraw more water for a power increase at the station. The station is in Salem Township.
