In this Friday, June 13, 2014 photo, Buzz Miller, executive vice president of nuclear development at Southern Co., stands in front of the high-pressure vessel that will be used in a new nuclear reactor at Plant Vogtle power plant in Waynesboro, Ga. Before it started building, the nuclear industry promised its new generation of plants would be constructed using giant Lego-like modules that make building faster, cheaper and produce a higher-quality result. Instead, the Louisiana factory building these modules has failed to master quality control rules, stick to schedule or replicate the approved designs, adding time and significant cost to first-of-their-kind projects. (AP Photo/John Bazemore)WAYNESBORO, Ga. (AP) — The U.S. nuclear industry has started building its first new plants in decades using prefabricated Lego-like blocks meant to save time and money and revive the once promising energy source.

(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)LOS ANGELES (AP) — The sprinklers outside the California's state Capitol are off and the lawn is withering, the lemon- and cucumber-infused "water stations" at the state pension building are gone, and prison inmates are taking shorter showers while campers at some popular parks can't take them at all.
