East TN nuclear fuel plant to improve infrastructure; maintenance

Erwin (AP) -- An East Tennessee nuclear fuel processing plant is planning millions of dollars in improvements.

The plan comes after federal regulators said better oversight is needed at the privately owned Nuclear Fuel Services facility in Erwin.

The plant, among other things, converts surplus bomb-grade uranium into commercial reactor fuel for the TVA.
