Congressman Dr. Ralph Abraham, R-Alto, met with representatives from Entergy at its River Bend nuclear facility July 1.

Abraham and his chief of staff, Luke Letlow, toured the plant to learn more about its operations and its impact on West Feliciana Parish and surrounding areas.

“Domestic energy like that produced at Entergy’s River Bend facility is critical to our national security and well-being. This plant plays a vital role in both energy production and economic stimulation for West Feliciana Parish and the surrounding areas,” Abraham said. “I’m thankful to site Vice President Eric Olson and his team for the very informative tour, and I look forward to learning more about nuclear power and its impact on our nation.”

The group toured the site’s control room, technical command center and dry cask storage area, among other areas.
