Significant changes have occurred within the utility industry within the past 10 years. Projected growth in electric power demand has not materialized. Nuclear power plants, with long lead times, were left vulnerable. The nuclear power industry is now in the transition between construction of new plants and modifications to existing plants. Additionally, work continues in the planning for radioactive waste disposal and plant decommissioning. These proceedings address these issues and the future outlook for the nuclear power and the civil engineer.
