RICHLAND, Wash. – Energy Northwest is pleased to announce that a “seismic safety” page was added to its public website today.

The new page is divided into five main sections: Design and Construction, Fukushima Comparisons, Seismic Inspections, Seismic Instrumentation and Current Seismic Study Efforts.
