(RED WING, MINNESOTA) -- Northern States Power is being challenged by an environmental group on its storage of nuclear waste. The North American Water Office of Lake Elmo is taking the matter to the Court of Appeals. They allege N-S-P is using an illegal method to increase its storage capabilities. N-S- P says all it is doing is temporarily storing fuel assemblies and is not violating state law.
