A graiup at Midland area residents - tue Sagi-
iaw Valli'y Nuclear Stuidy Group (SVNSG)s--- is
oppasing before an Atansic Energy Canmmission
AEC) hearing, plans of thc Consumssers Pacer
Comatp-ny to build twoanusclear reactars near their
Consiseis.Pass-r hiss asked far approval fraom
tlhe AEC to cons'trusct two 825 megawtatt reactors
to provide "processed steasa' to an adjacent situ
an cwhichs a Past Chiemical Corporatiaos planit is
located.
Major issues thic groops are concerned with in-
ciride Cansumers' emsergency- and evacuation
plains in mihc event af an accident, technical train-
tag of Consumners' plant personnel, quality as sir-
ances on niateria ls, p0ossible environmsental ef-
fets at the p1,ant, and Ithe iadine spi'ay remsoval

sidered the miaterial thuat wvouild spread mtii
quiickly in case of a msajor accident in the fa-
cility.

In thec hearings now being held in Midland,

SVNSG has pointed to time fact that the cites-
gency care coaling systems tailed in six consecsu-
live tests in Idaho. and cousld nat be relied sipon
ta stark.
The studs' grouip also contended that there arc
inadequate hospital facilities to treat victimas of
expasure to radioactivity in case there is an ac-
cident at the plant.
The three man board, a ppointed by the ARC,
will decide at the conclussion at the hearings if
the plant shotuld he licens-ed. Ift they approve
this plants, the study group could take their ca.se
to a court at appeals.
Thenec-ill also be another set at hearings oaesse
whether the comspany is- violating the Sithetsan
Anti-Tr-ust Act. Thme anti-trust lawvs require that
c-hen two businesses jointly control an essasotiat
resource, they must grant access to it, an eqipi
