Work may be resuming soon on the Bellefonte Nuclear Power Plant in Northeast Alabama. The unfinished nuclear power plant is located about 30 miles east of Chattooga County on the Tennessee River in Jackson County, Alabama. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission recently granted the Tennessee Valley Authority permission to resume work on the unfinished power plant. Work began in the 1970’s on the nuclear reactor. If construction resumes on the plant it would mean quite a few jobs for the area, but in the past environmental groups have protested the plant.
