SEABROOK, N.H. (AP) - Nuclear regulators are seeking the public’s feedback on a plan to address concrete erosion at Seabrook’s power plant.

NextEra Energy wants to extend its license for Seabrook Station by two decades. It must first show the Nuclear Regulatory Commission how it’ll address alkali silica reaction, which causes concrete erosion.

The chemical reaction was found in several plant structures in 2010.
