Comanche Peak Power Plant, Glen Rose, Texas

Construction of Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant began in 1974, although the plant did not begin producing electricity until 1990. The plant, which is located in Glen Rose, Texas, was originally owned and operated by Texas Utilities; by 2010, it had been acquired by Luminant Generation. Its 2 pressurized water reactors have the net capacity to generate 2,300 megawatts of electricity.

Like many nuclear power plants, Comanche Peak Power Plant has been protested by some environmentalist groups. In addition, Texas Utilities has faced a number of accusations from people who used to work at the plant. Beginning in 1990, former workers and their families began to accuse the plant’s owners of exposing them to dangerous toxins, including the harmful mineral asbestos.

Accusations against the Comanche Power Plant

Prior to 1987, power plants all over the US were constructed with asbestos, a toxin that has been linked to lung cancer, the lung disease asbestosis, and the cancer mesothelioma. According to claims filed by previous workers, the Comanche Creek Nuclear Power Plant is among them. Many of the lawsuits filed against Texas Utilities concern the use of asbestos-containing paint in the construction of the plant, although asbestos may have also been in other materials.

In the years since construction of the plant began, many former workers at the Comanche Nuclear Power Plant have been diagnosed with respiratory disorders, many of them associated with asbestos exposure. If you or a loved one has worked at an older power plant of any kind, you should let your doctor know about this potential threat to your health.
