(AP) — A federal report released Monday proposes a $275 million array of technological and structural upgrades at a crucial site in Illinois to prevent invasive Asian carp from reaching the Great Lakes and its vulnerable fish populations.The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers outlined its tentative plan in a report that had been scheduled for release in February but was delayed by the Trump administration, drawing criticism from members of Congress and environmental groups.Despite the benefit of protecting the lakes from Asian carp, the Army corps acknowledged its preferred approach could affect other wildlife species, from turtles, frogs and otters caught in the electric current to native fish whose migration paths would be interrupted."The Army Corps report makes clear that it's time for serious preventative actions to keep Asian carp out of the Great Lakes," said Howard Learner, executive director of the Chicago-based Environmental Law and Policy Center.In a joint statement, the Alliance for the Great Lakes, Natural Resources Defense Council, Sierra Club and Prairie Rivers Network said the corps plan was "another step in the fight against the upstream movement of Asian carp" but didn't address how to impede Great Lakes fish from migrating downstream into the Mississippi watershed.

- Regulators to hear plans to stop building 2 nuclear reactors
By SEANNA ADCOX, Associated Press - Tuesday Aug 1, 2017
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A utility will brief South Carolina regulators Tuesday on its plans to end construction of two nuclear reactors that customers have already paid billions to build.The state Public Service Commission will hear from executives with SCANA, the parent company of South Carolina Electric & Gas.While the decision will save customers billions in additional costs, the utilities' customers of the two utilities may get little to nothing refunded of the billions they've already paid for the now-abandoned project.A 2007 state law allows electric utilities to collect money from customers to finance a project before it generates power.Tom Clements of Friends of the Earth said his environmental group, which has questioned the project from the outset, will work to "get to the bottom line of how this happened, who's responsible" and what that means for customers.The utilities announced last week that Westinghouse's parent company, Toshiba Corp., agreed to jointly pay them $2.2 billion regardless of whether the reactors are ever completed.
