OTC NPP Highest Damage ChartThe San Onofre and Diablo Canyon nuclear reactors kill millions of fish and other aquatic life every year, due to their once-through cooling (OTC) systems. They do not meet Federal Clean Water Act §316(b) regulations.  Numerous state agencies have jurisdiction over this issue. If they do not grant permits to operate, the nuclear plants would be shut down.  See Once-through Cooling Issues section of the SanOnofreSafety.org website to learn why.  NOTE: New Jersey’s Oyster Creek nuclear plant is closing due to the expense of complying with their once-through cooling rules.

  1. The debate appears to continue regarding San Onofre. Who ever you are, wherever you live, if you have the power to deactivate, PLEASE vote to shut it down ! Why take the chance ? Use The Golden Rule as a guide. Southern California would be dessimated and devastated if an implosion occurs. There are far more rational reasons to deactivate than there are rational arguments to restart this nuclear plant. Look at the map. North, south, east or west. At least fifty miles from that site could become unlivable ! ” Wisdom is knowing the right path to take. Integrity is taking it “. Carpe Diem.
