The Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will present a webinar for interested members of

the public on Aug. 8, regarding the decommissioning process for commercial nuclear power plants

and to obtain feedback on community advisory boards.

The webinar, which will begin at 1 p.m. EDT, will be held in conjunction with a series of

at locations across the country. Participants will be able to view slides prepared by NRC staff and

community advisory boards in communities around decommissioning nuclear power plants. Both

the webinar and the public meetings will help the NRC gather related information.
