02-12-2013 Capistrano Beach NRC meeting on San Onofre restart plan

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will meet with the public on February 12th to discuss the status of its review of Southern California Edison’s proposed plan to restart San Onofre Reactor Unit 2 WITHOUT fixing it first. The NRC expects to make a decision in April or May 2013 on whether to allow San Onofre Unit 2 reactor to restart.

Both Unit 2 and 3 reactors have the most defective replacement steam generators in U.S. history.  Edison’s flawed redesign of these critical steam generators resulted in decades of wear in less than two years and a radiation leak in less than one year of operation.  Now Edison wants to restart the Unit 2 reactor without repairing or replacing the defective and worn steam generators. See handout of why the San Onofre Nuclear Reactors should not be restarted.

Please attend this NRC meeting and share this information with others.
