AEHI finishes site improvements at proposed nuclear site

Boise, Idaho, March 28, 2012 — Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. announced the company has completed initial site improvements prior to beginning an extensive environmental study, which is expected to begin in the 2nd quarter of this year.

Nuclear energy engineering firm, ENERCON Services, Inc., was contracted to perform the study as part of the larger combined operating license application that will be prepared and submitted to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Some of the site improvements included the installation of a roadway culvert, a recessed entrance gate, a gravel driveway with parking pad, a construction office trailer and additional signage.

When the environmental study begins, the site will also maintain a secure storage container for geotechnical samples and a meteorological tower among other activities. The tower will be used to track and analyze weather data. During that time ENERCON will also perform a number of core borings and other sophisticated geological studies to determine the seismic and geological stability of the site.
