Ameren prepares for second nuclear reactor in Missouri

Tuesday, March 25, 2008

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Utility provider Ameren continues to prepare for a possible second nuclear reactor at its Callaway County plant south of Fulton.

A license application to federal regulators is expected to be filed later this year.

Meanwhile, the company is replacing the six-mile pipeline that connects the reactor to the Missouri River.

Also, the Missouri Department of Transportation is considering building another road to accommodate increased traffic from the construction project.

A company spokesman says a final decision on building a new reactor won't be made until 2010. If built, the new reactor would not be complete until 2018.
