Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
However, in an astounding case of bad timing, a proposal for a 3,000 MW plant (largish but not gigantic) is being floated this week in south-central Colorado.

...the nuclear power plant is essential for the economic development of Pueblo County. He said along with more energy and tax revenue it would bring hundreds of construction jobs and permanent positions to Southern Colorado.

The locals are not very happy...

I guess so. The downstream folks (including suburbs of Denver that own water rights in the Arkansas basin, and would not be happy if those rights were messed up by an accident) have not been heard from yet...
