Nuclear Regulatory Commission Town Hall to Discuss San Onofre

NRC to Hold Public Meeting to Discuss Oversight Activities at San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will hold a public meeting on Aug. 20 to discuss the status of fuel loading operations at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. The San Clemente, Calif., plant is owned by Southern California Edison and permanently shut down in 2013. The “town hall” style meeting, to be held at the San Juan Capistrano Community Center, 25925 Camino Del Avion, will run from 7-8:30 p.m. NRC staff will update the public on ongoing inspection activities, then seek questions and comments from members of the public on spent fuel storage related issues. Fuel loading operations were suspended following an Aug. 3, 2018, incident involving a loaded spent fuel storage canister that was misaligned and became stuck on a flange while being lowered into a storage vault. Information about the incident and NRC’s response is available on the NRC website. Edison resumed fuel loading operations last month after the NRC determined operations could be safely resumed following extensive corrective actions by the company
