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.
