Wolf Creek Deemed Safe, But Still Under Scrutiny
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says the Wolf Creek nuclear plant operated safely last year.
But the plant, which is the only nuclear plant in Kansas, remains under heightened scrutiny because of a series of problems in 2013.
The Kansas Chapter of the Sierra Club says it's a mistake for the EPA to stop monitoring ozone pollution on the Konza Prairie, near Manhattan. Ozone concentrations there have been consistently higher than the level allowed under federal air quality standards.
The monitor four miles south of Manhattan has been collecting data since 2002. The EPA says their monitors operate at the discretion of the landowner.
