ATTEND, COMMENT: Decommissioning Meetings across the country

NRC announced 11 public meetings regarding establishment of local community advisory boards (CABs). These meetings run from August through October, 2019 and are in places where reactors are decommissioning. NRC will accept written comments through mid-November 2019 if you cannot attend a meeting in person.

The initiative began with an August 8th NRC webinar. These proceedings were recorded by Nick Maxwell at WeTheFourth in New Mexico.

The first of 11 meetings, on August 21, discussed Palisades nuclear facility in Michigan. Kevin Kamps, Beyond Nuclear's radioactive waste specialist, testified along with other concerned groups and individuals.

The next group of meetings will be in California if you want to attend in person:

August 26 (Humbolt Bay);

August 27 (Diablo Canyon);

August 29, (San Onofre)
