Nuclear Regulatory Commission to Hold Meeting Re: SONGS

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will hold a public meeting to discuss the status of its oversight of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and respond to questions about current plant issues.

Both San Onofre nuclear reactors have been off-line since January 2012 due to a radiation leak and unprecedented premature wear in newly replaced steam generators.

Date:  October 9, 2012  6 – 9:30 p.m.

St. Regis Monarch Beach Hotel
One Monarch Beach Resort, Dana Point, CA

Parking fee:     $10 valet parking or $5 self-parking.        Arriving early is recommended.  Self-parking may be limited. 

The first part of the meeting will be a facilitated roundtable discussion on topics ofsignificant public interest. The second part of the meeting will be a question and answer session between the NRC and the public on topics related to San Onofre and the NRC’s regulatory process.

Representatives for the roundtable are being chosen by the NRC in consultation with local interest groups. Members have not been chosen yet.

The NRC is making arrangements to webcast the meeting and will provide additional details at a later date.

“We want to provide members of the public with an opportunity to get their questions answered on a broad range of topics related to San Onofre,” said Region IV Administrator Elmo E. Collins. “We think the roundtable discussion along with an open question and answer session will provide people with a means of doing this.”
