Nuclear Storage May Be Coming to Hobbs
HOBBS – The Eddy-Lea Energy Alliance are partnering with Holtec International to make Lea County the site for nuclear storage of spent rods.
The proposed nuclear waste site would be 35 miles west of Hobbs and 35 miles east of Carlsbad. Moving forward, Eddy and Lea County hope that the site will bring great economic opportunities to the area.
Despite the revenue and jobs the proposed facility could bring, some residents of Hobbs aren’t sure they want to have nuclear storage in their city.
