HOBBS (AP) - Two environmental groups say that if a nuclear-fuel plant is built near Eunice, it could end up releasing uranium-contaminated water into nearby aquifers.

That testimony came from officials of two Washington-based groups: Nuclear Information and Resource Service and Public Citizen. The groups were in Hobbs for the first of a weeklong series of hearings on the proposed nuclear-fuel plant.

The consortium Louisiana Energy Services has filed a license application for the plant. Officials of Louisiana Energy Services say the facility would be safe.

LES wants to build the $1.2 billion plant to refine uranium for nuclear reactors. It says the plant will be a big boost for the region’s economy. Local officials have been largely supportive.
