The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has announced a new date and location for its meeting with officials at Southern California Edison to discuss the company’s confirmatory action letter responding to the NRC’s inspection of the steam generator tubes at both units of San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.
The meeting is now scheduled for November 30, from 6-9 p.m at the Hills Hotel in Laguna Hills
The meeting had originally been scheduled for November 16 in Dana Point, but the venue was not secured, and the meeting was delayed so that a new venue could be found.
According to the NRC’s news release, the meeting will include a technical presentation by SCE on the basis, methodology, and conclusions of their efforts to identify the causes of the unexpected steam generator tube wear, the corrective actions taken to address those causes, and the basis for continued safe operation of Unit 2. The public would be able to interact with NRC officials after the business portion of the meeting.
The NRC is encouraging the public to primarily view the event via webcast, due to the limited capacity (400 people) of the venue.
