The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has scheduled a Category 3 Meeting for Tuesday, October 9, 2012, from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, 1 Monarch Beach Resort, Dana Point CA. 92629.
This will be the first time that local concerned citizens, the NRC and Southern California Edison will take part together in a roundable discussion about San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) issues. They will also be joined at the discussion table by representatives from the California Energy Commission, the Coastal Commission and the California Public Utilities Commission.
This historic meeting will have two parts. The first part will be a roundtable discussion about SONGS steam generator problems. Part two will be a general discussion about procedures of the NRC and their effectiveness. Questions from the public will be taken throughout the meeting I have promised by the NRC.
“Generators 2 and 3 have been shut down since late January for safety issues. We welcome this opportunity to sit down with the NRC, Southern Calfiornia Edison and other interested parties,” said Gene Stone, a resident of San Clemente and head of Residents Organized for a Safe Environment. “Restarting San Onofre would pose a grave and dangerous threat to the eight-and-a-half million citizens who live nearby and their voices need to be heard loudly and clearly. We call on all interested citizens to come to this meeting and express their concerns about San Onofre.”
