Smaller nuclear reactors in Eastern Washington a future possibility?

Energy Northwest is reportedly considering to check if there is a need for adding a small modular nuclear reactor system near the Tri-Cities. The Columbia Generating Station, the only commercial nuclear power reactor in the Northwest, is also operated by Energy Northwest.

While there are obviously concerns with how nuclear waste is stored in America every single energy model shows that we can only maintain our energy production levels by using nuclear energy while we slowly (too slowly) switch away from fuel sources that damage the environment. If stored properly nuclear waste has next to no impact on the environment and due to the efficiency of resources used in contruction vs power yield nuear power is actually cleaner than current solar, wind and hydro power options.

Washington already has a problem with Hanford and their poor cleanup, unless they crackdown on the current problem and look to prevent the next plant from doing the same id hope they look into other options
