DRESDEN NUCLEAR POWER STATION, UNIT 2: NRC to Conduct Webinar Seeking Public Comments on Decommissioning Community Advisory Board Best Practices

Local Government

By Press release submission | Nov 16, 2019


Dresden Nuclear Power Station, Unit 2 issued the following announcement on Nov. 12.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will hold a webinar on Nov. 19 to provide

interested members of the public another opportunity to comment on decommissioning community

advisory board best practices.

The webinar is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Eastern time with participants able to view

slides prepared by NRC staff and ask questions both verbally and in writing via a web page set up to

host the session. Online registration is required to participate.

Under the Nuclear Energy Innovation and Modernization Act, which became law on

Jan. 14, 2019, the NRC is required to prepare a report for Congress identifying best practices for the

establishment and operation of local community advisory boards in communities near

decommissioning nuclear power plants. To gather information for that report, the NRC staff

conducted a kickoff webinar on Aug. 8 and held 11 public meetings around the country beginning

in late August and concluding in mid-October.

Holding meetings near every plant undergoing decommissioning or preparing for the

decommissioning process was not practical. The webinar on Nov. 19 will provide another

opportunity for interested members of the public to offer comments.

Additional information on NEIMA Section 108 activities are on the NRC website.
