|Storage pool capacity in the USA|
Forecast spent fuel storage capacity near American reactors. All 103 of the reactors currently in operation store their fuel in pools located nearby under licenses granted by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). Some of the pools are already completely full and this should be the case for all of them by 2015. Some licensees also make use of dry storage facilities.
