"Hearings on NY Nuke Plant Start With Tech Talk"

"TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- A federal hearing that could decide the future of a nuclear plant in the New York City suburbs began Monday on a less-than-dramatic note."

"The hearing was dominated by a highly technical discussion about how to predict where corrosion might occur in the miles of piping at the Indian Point nuclear plant.

With references to 'void fraction,' 'enthalpy' and 'wall thinning,' experts quickly bored the 100 or so people who had come to show support for or opposition to new licenses for the plant.

Public comment was not permitted."
