Email

MONTICELLO, Minn. -- Months of planning at the Monticello nuclear plant will be put into practice when spent nuclear fuel is moved from an indoor pool to new above-ground storage.

The Prairie Island nuclear plant in Red Wing already uses outdoor dry-cask storage.

The Monticello casks will go into concrete storage modules. The storage area is surrounded by two chain-link fences and monitored by cameras and other security devices.
