An 8,000 page document and no mention of what type of reactor is proposed? Old generation LWR or new Generation IV pebble bed reactor, which could use the remilled 'spent' fuel rods for powering the new reactor. Use new technology to reduce the waste stream from the old technology and you will have power and less waste to put in Yucca mountain.

That sounds like a plan - they could reprocess the spent fuel from unit #1 and use it in unit #2 - is that correct? This is just an intention to file I believe - the first in a LONG, LONG process of paperwork, permits, reviews, etc.(probably why nukes cost 10 times as much as dirt burners to build).
