Content Note

The Wolf Creek Generating Station Environmental Report concerns the proposed nuclear power plant to be constructed at Burlington, Kansas. The environmental report is a research design aimed at evaluating the possible consequences of the project on man’s environment and on man himself. The overall purpose of the nuclear facility is to diversify man’s power resources before the finite supply of fossil fuels is entirely consumed. The report examines the probable effects of the nuclear plant on the areas of archeology, geology, hydrology, meteorology, and ecology. A descriptive narrative is also included as to the amount of nuclear waste which will have to be dealt with, its disposal, transportation of nuclear fuels, transmission facilities, and finally, safety precautions. The final portion of the collections is comprised of a discussion of alternative energy resources available and an overall cost-benefit analysis of nuclear power as a method of fuel diversification.
