Lynchburg seemed wonderful as I was looking at photos and videos online and gleaning info from the boards until I learned about the nuclear power plant with more to be built. No thanks. What area of VA are free of theses kind of dangers?

Lynchburg is a lovely place. Go for it.

You cannot worry about nuclear plants. Those that are currently working are very closely watched by The Feds. And their maintained to the highest standards.

And no future nuclear plants will ever be built. TVA's Watts Bar is probably the last one we'll ever see.

You can look for solar farms to be built on ex-power plant grounds as they can hook into the existing power grid saving $2 million a mile.

I live in Lynchburg and this is news to me lol. Seriously though, we have a nuclear technology and design sector with Framatome and BWXT here, but no actual nuclear power plants with no plans for one to be built I believe BWXT is mainly a defense contractor that designs nuclear engines for submarines. I've heard they are also helping with the design work on the engines for the first manned mission to Mars...

How many miles from Lynchburg is the nuclear power plant? Is there any other businesses around the area that work with radioactive chemicals? Do they regularly test the ground water? Lynchburg looks like a wonderful place but I don't want to be paranoid about dangerous chemicals,
