In a related development, David Watts, President of the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, recently met with Congressman Pearce about developing a heliumcooled nuclear reactor facility, which would be built underground in either Lea County, New Mexico or Andrews County, Texas. General Atomics of San Diego has funded the preconceptual design, which is underway and scheduled for completion in August. Waste Control Specialists has a lowlevel radioactive waste storage site in Andrews County. Realistically, a nuclear reactor in New Mexico is not out of the question. The legislators may get what they want. We believe Senator Domenici will ultimately set into motion the plans to bring New Mexico its first nuclear power plant. It would become his crowning achievement in helping the nuclear renaissance blossom in this country and in his state.
