Complete the following assignment and bring a hard copy to class this Friday March 29 for an in-class discussion. You will be turning in this assignment at the end of this class. For this assignment, I want you to investigate the current issues revolving around the closure of the Navajo Generating Station (NGS). Utilities that own the largest coal power plant in the Western United States have agreed to shut it down in 2019, ~ 25 years ahead of schedule. NGS is located on the Navajo Nation and provides power to the southwest and for pumping water from the Colorado River, in the Central Arizona Project canal, to Phoenix and Tucson. For this assignment, you will do some background research and identify the current ethical issues, you must complete this prior to class. Part 1: NGS background Do a bit of online research on the history and background of the NGS facility. Write a ½ page summary on the background of the NGS facility (i.e. where it is located, specs of the plant, where does the fuel come from, who are the owners and operators and, identify why it is closing). Cite at least two sources in IEEE format. Note: you can use websites but it must be in correct format. Part 2: Fundamental Ethical Questions – Answer the hypothetical questions below assuming you are the head engineer with the sole decision to either close the plant or keep it open for some determined time. 1. Ethical issues a. Identify the two ethical issues of the case. Explicitly state the primary ethical dilemma, and work to identify any secondary ethical dilemmas. 2. Stakeholders a. Identify the various stakeholders. Start with those most immediate to the actions then think more broadly. b. What are their interests? c.

See NSPE codes of Ethics link on next page. b. What do the engineering codes of conduct suggest should be done next? See rules of practice 5. Evaluating Actions a. Come up with two different possible courses of action assuming you are deciding the fate of NGS. b. What is the best course of action you are considering giving all things considered? c.
