The NRC approved on March 30, 2012 an application made in 2008 for two new nuclear reactors for electrical generation on the Broad River near Parr SC. Lets hope the construction which will be done by Shaw of Charlotte, NC is be done ina way that is not harmful to the fishery. At a minimum, there will be a greater use of the river water for cooling the reactors, scheduled to be commissioned in 2015, and therefore an increase in fluctuation of river levels downstream which makes fishing more challenging especially in periods of high water.
